LibreOffice 4.3.5 built for Slackware, with 4.4.0 not far off

There was an announcement a few days ago by The Document Foundation about their latest release. LibreOffice 4.3.5 is now available for download. When browsing the download directories, I noticed that sources for 4.4.0 are already present there, but since there is no public announcement yet, I chose to ignore those sources for now.

Rebuilt LibreOffice 4.2.3 packages fix KDE-related bug

 Today I uploaded new packages for the LibreOffice 4.2.3 . The original packages were made available a little while ago but several people (myself included) were not happy with them.
