Note to packagers

The pre-release is due to massive changes in the build system to test the release. Autotools is completely dropped and the new and only build system is now Meson.

Dropped dependencies:

  • autotools
  • intltool

New dependencies:

  • meson
  • atspi-2
  • sphinxbase
  • pocketsphinx

Most dependencies were upgraded, see /

There is a couple of configuration options, see /meson_options.txt
You might have to set the 'libreoffice-dir' option, it might be distro-dependent.
