LibreOffice galore! Last week saw the announcement of the latest in the 4.x series, and I decided to build LibreOffice 4.4.4 packages. This time however, they are created for Slackware 14.1. The stable release of Slackware deserves the latest stable office suite to keep you guys productive.
I do not leave users of Slackware-current out in the cold. Those who are running slackware-current are willing to experiment, not afraid that something may break and will rely on their skills to fix what gets broken along the road. So I decided to upgrade the LibreOffice 4.4.3 packages for Slackware-current that I had in my repository, not to 4.4.4 but in a big jump, all the way to 5.0.0.rc2. LibreOffice 5 is waiting for us behind the gates and it is promising to make an impact. The source code for the second Release Candidate for LibreOffice 5.0.0 was made available a few days ago as well, and I have not heard anything negative about my earlier packages for the first Release Candidate.
So there you have it! LibreOffice 4.4.4 for Slackware 14.1 and 5.5.0.rc2 for -current.
Get them from my server or any mirror closer to you:

Perhaps a good time to remind you that you can use slackpkg+ to manage your 3rd party packages if those are maintained in Slackware-compatible repositories (like mine). The “slackpkgplus.conf” configuration file for slackpkg+ already has example entries for my repositories – it will be a matter of “slackpkg update && slackpkg upgrade libreoffice” to upgrade to my latest versions.
Have fun! Eric
