LibreOffice 4.2.3 - Fixed heartbleed bug

A new version of LibreOffice has been released and the good news is that this version fixed the serious heartbleed bug which was exposed last week and become a very heated discussion about it over the Internet. Lots of users are encouraged to upgrade their OpenSSL libraries as well as other applications that statically linked against OpenSSL. LibreOffice is one of them.

Eric Hameleers has published his packages on his repository and it's mirror sites for public usage. Please note about the split packages written on his blog:
The SDK documentation (several hundreds of MB) has now moved into a separate package “libreoffice-sdkdoc” which you will not need unless you are a developer. And the KDE integration libraries have been moved into their own package as well: “libreoffice-kde-integration”
In other word, if you are using KDE, you may want to install the new libreoffice-kde-integration package to make your LibreOffice works better with your KDE environment.

As always, packages can be grabbed from this mirror sites:
