DescriptionLibreOffice was updated to version 188.8.131.52, bringing enhancements and bug fixes.
- CVE-2016-4324: Parsing the Rich Text Format character style index was insufficiently checked for validity.
Documents could be constructed which dereference an iterator to the first entry of an empty STL container.

This prevents a segmentation fault in gnome-documents.
