LibreOffice 3.6.7 (last in series) packaged for Slackware 13.37

I thought that with 3.6.6 the LibreOffice developers had released the last update in the 3.6 series. However, there is yet another release. and it looks like 3.6.7 is really going to be the final incremental release. LibreOffice 3.6.7 is a bugfix release (changes in and which was added to the release schedule in a late stage. This means end-of-life for the 3.6 series and everybody is encouraged to migrate to the stable 4.0 series.

These LibreOffice 3.6.7 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 4.0.4 packages (32bit, 64bit) in my repository for Slackware 14 and -current. Perhaps it is time for you to upgrade your Slackware along with LibreOffice in a little while, if you are still running 13.37? The new Slackware 14.1 should not be too far off.

The LibreOffice 3.6.7 packages are available here:

Cheers Eric, you’re a champion! šŸ˜€
(Btw, there’s certainly one good reason to continue using Slackware 13.37 – it’s the most leet release of Slackware there will ever be…)

Slackmaster, I will not create LibreOffice-4.x packages for Slackware 13.37.

Ultimately, I will create packages for LibreOffice 4.1.x but I have not yet decided if that will be for Slackware 14.0 or Slackware 14.1.

Maintaining LibreOffice packages for 2 architectures and 3 different Slackware version is really a heavy task. It’s wise to avoid LibreOffice 4.1 from 13.37 or even better also with 14.0. They already have LibreOffice 4.0.5 which is stable enough.

Save LibreOffice 4.1 for Slackware 14.1 šŸ™‚

Sorry, is that I’m already using the current slackware, I was not referring to libreoffice for slackware 13, I’m using the current 14, so I would leave the libreoffice 4.1 updated, thanks Eric
