I was on vacation for a while, then after my return I mainly focused on getting the new Audacity packages successfully built. In the meantime, Google was not idling and released version 105.0.5195.125 of the Chromium sourcecode.
There’s 11 vulnerability fixes in this release, some of them rated high enough that it is again recommended to upgrade your browser as soon as possible.
I did not forget the un-googled variant of course for which the same recommendation is valid.
The 64bit packages for chromium and chromium-ungoogled (Slackware 14.2 and newer) can already be downloaded from my repository and its main mirrors. You’ll have to wait a bit for the 32bit packages, they are compiling at the moment. Thanks to Google developers who I assume mostly run 64bit Ubuntu, the 32bit compilation of Chromium sources quite frequently meets with issues that need time to resolve.
Thank you Eric.

Thank you for the update.
Thanks, Eric – especially for the 32bit slackware 14.2 versions!
Btw, if you compile any recent chromium code – do you think there is a way of how to reenable support for TLSv1? I suspect Google has completely ditched support for anything lower than TLSv1.1 from their code, but should there be a way, I’d be interrested to know how to reenable it using cmdline or in chrome://flags or at least at compile time.
TLS 1.0 or 1.1 can not be enabled in Chromium anymore for a long time. Perhaps you’ll have more success in Firefox if you set “security.tls.version.enable-deprecated” to “true” in “about:config”.
By the way, I am planning to ultimately stop providing Chromium packages for Slackware 14.2, one year after the release of Slackware 15.0 – unless something breaks before that date which prevents a successful compilation.
Meaning, you should not expect Chromium updates for Slackware 14.2 after Feb 2nd, 2023. If that is a troublesome thought, you have almost half a year to plan an upgrade to Slackware 15.0.
