LibreOffice Community Edition 7.3.5 was released last week. The Document Foundation blog has the news on it.
The 7.3.x releases are the bleeding edge of this popular office suite but nevertheless really stable software. Libre Office 7.4.0 is right along the corner (expected release is mid-august) but I might hold out on that first release.
The new package set for libreoffice-7.3.5 (for Slackware 15.0 and -current) can be downloaded from 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‘ and boost-compat. These are other packages in my repository; they contain 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.
I wrestled with the Chromium 103 updates. Most frustrating program to build, ever, considering the time it takes to compile a package and the fast release cycle.
Here’s the heads-up: I have an incremental update both for regular and un-googled Chromium 103, but only after I finally gave up on compiling the 32bit chromium-ungoogled package. The compiler just keeps on segfaulting.
Google’s announcement last week of the 103.0.5060.134 release mentions a couple of vulnerabilities with a security level of ‘high’, so again it’s recommended to upgrade. This release kept my build box busy for several days but with VLC and LibreOffice packages waiting to be built and seeing the chromium-ungoogled compilation fail 4 times in a row at different stages, I had to decide skipping the 32bit chromium-ungoogled package this time. Let’s hope I have better luck next time.
The updated packages for chromium and chromium-ungoogled are available for Slackware 14.2 and newer. I will try to keep supporting Slackware 14.2 for as long as I can.
The packages 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/ .
