My thoughts on Slackware, life and everything

Chromium (-ungoogled) 111 packaged for Slackware 15.0 and -current

You’ll have noticed – as indicated earlier, the Chromium packages for Slackware 14.2 are no longer being updated.
Today I made available the Slackware packages available for Chromium 111.0.5563.64, and they are accompanied by the un-googled version. This latest release squashes a massive 40 vulnerabilities, none labeled critical, but it’s wise to keep your systems uptodate nevertheless.
These new packages are targeting Slackware 15.0 and newer.

Enjoy! Eric

LibreOffice 7.5.1 packages for Slackware 15.0 and -current

I skipped LibreOffice 7.5.0 because I was too busy at the time, but last week there was a release of LibreOffice 7.5.1. I got stuck in my attempts to change my chromium SlackBuild script to run more efficiently on Slackware 15.0, so it seemed like a good time to work on something else than a Google product.

But as with many software products that make a version jump, updating the Libreoffice build script was not completely trivial. Not as bad though as with Chromium. Eventually, I was able to come up with nice working binaries and I have already uploaded those to my repository and its US and UK mirrors.

These packages are targeting Slackware 15.0 and newer.
Note that my libreoffice package depends on openjdk11.

The link above to the release announcement also lists the most important new features that come with LibreOffice 7.5.x. Well worth checking out.
