The LibreOffice developers released another update to the old 3.6.x series very recently, but since there is a focus on advertizing the 4.0.x version, you won’t find an announcement anywhere. LibreOffice 3.6.6 is a bugfix release which was initially not planned in the release schedule, but an additional final release was added to the plan fairly soon after 3.6.5 was released.
These LibreOffice 3.6.6 packages which I am making available have been built on Slackware 13.37. They can be installed on Slackware 14 as well, but of course I have LibreOffice 4.0.2 packages (32bit, 64bit) in my repository for Slackware 14 and -current – it is up to you to decide which version you want to use on Slackware 14.
The LibreOffice 3.6.6 packages are available here:

- http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/people/alien/slackbuilds/libreoffice/ (my own mirror)
I really hate to be so picky Eric, particularly because I greatly value all the fabulous contributions that you make to us Slackware users, but are these packages based on LO 3.6.6 RC1 or RC2? It’s just that it appears that RC2 was only announced yesterday, and the final release of LO 3.6.6 (presumably to be identical to LO 3.6.6 RC2) will be announced later this week…
I downloaded from this page, which states that it is Libreoffice 3.6.6 : http://www.libreoffice.org/download/?type=src&version=3.6.6
The actual version of the sources I used is 220.127.116.11 (i.e. the RC2 code, which indeed would move to official 3.6.6 status).
So, perhaps there will be an official release this week.
Cheers for the clarification Eric, and thank you very much for the packages! 🙂
Thank you Eric for taking the time to provide this package for “conservative” users like me.
Good luck for your work on the ARM port.
Libreoffice version 4.0.3
