LibreOffice 4.0.1 Package for Slackware

One month has passed since LibreOffice 4.0.0 gets introduced last month and here we are in March we get to see LibreOffice 4.0.1, a stable and maintenance version of LibreOffice 4.0.x branch that soon will replace LibreOffice 3.6.x branch (currently, enterprise users are still advised to use LibreOffice 3.6.5 for more stable environments). If you look at the ChangeLogs (RC1 and RC2), you will see that this release brings a lot of improvements to the whole modules.

The Document Foundation also released a new documentation called Getting Started with LibreOffice 4.0 which is available on ODF and PDF formats from TDF's Website or as a printed book from Lulu.

Another interesting information is the availability of LibreOffice Impress Remote for all three major platforms (Windows, Linux, Mac) on Google Play. See the HowTo for more information about this tool. You will also get a new splash screen from this release. I wonder why didn't they include this one on their first major release?

Eric Hameleers as always, built this package for Slackware users and provide them in his repository and being mirrored to other servers. You can get LibreOffice packages from this mirror sites:
They are built on Slackware 14.0, but it will work as well in Slackware-Current.
