LibreOffice 7.3.3 and an update for Chromium 101

LibreOffice Community Edition is now at version 7.3.3. Read yesterday’s announcement on the Document Foundation blog to get the details of this incremental (bug-fix) update.
The 7.3.x releases are the bleeding edge of this popular office suite but nevertheless really stable software.
Support for Microsoft’s proprietary DOCX, XLSX and PPTX files will probably never be 100% spot-on but there is no other Open Source office suite that comes close to the excellent interoperability that LibreOffice offers.

A new set of libreoffice-7.3.3 packages for Slackware 15.0 and -current is now available in my repository.
Note that I compiled them on Slackware 15.0 so if you install them on Slackware -current you will also need to install ‘icu4c-compat‘. This is another package in my repository which contains older versions of the icu4c libraries, in particular the version that is part of Slackware 15.0 but no longer part of -current.

Get libreoffice packages from my own Europe-based server: https://slackware.nl/people/alien/slackbuilds/libreoffice/ or my US-based server: https://us.slackware.nl/people/alien/slackbuilds/libreoffice/ ;or any mirror if you wait a day, for instance https://slackware.uk/people/alien/slackbuilds/libreoffice/ .
These servers all offer rsync access if you prefer that to http.


I also provided an incremental update for regular and un-googled Chromium as part of Google’s bug-fix program.
Updated packages for chromium and chromium-ungoogled bring the version of this browser to 101.0.4951.54, supporting Slackware 14.2 and newer.
They can be downloaded from the usual places like http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/ , http://slackware.nl/people/alien/slackbuilds/ , http://us.slackware.nl/people/alien/slackbuilds/ or http://slackware.uk/people/alien/slackbuilds/ .

Enjoy the new releases – Eric
