LibreOffice 7.4.0 and security updates for Chromium 104

Updates for you!
I added fresh packages for LibreOffice Community Edition 7.4.0 which was released a few days ago. According to the Document Foundation blog post, the focus is on improving MS Office document format interoperability and helping people migrate from MS Office to LibreOffice.

Note that I compiled these new packages on Slackware 15.0. If you install them on Slackware -current you will also need to download ‘icu4c-compat‘ and boost-compat from my repository and install them. They are two compatibility packages containing older versions of the icu4c and boost libraries, in particular the versions that are 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.

 

Then there is the security update for Chromium 104.

Google shared an announcement a couple of days ago, mentioning that the 104.0.5112.101 release addresses several vulnerabilities ranked as “high” but also a critical vulnerability (CVE-2022-2852). For one of the “high” vulnerabilities CVE-2022-2856 actually a 0-day exploit is reported to exist in the wild.
I strongly recommended to upgrade.

For chromium-ungoogled, I have done the same upgrade of course, so those packages are now also at version 104.0.5112.101, just like the chromium packages.

The updated packages for chromium and chromium-ungoogled are available for Slackware 14.2 and newer 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/ .
