    1.3 Maintenance Release 1 Now Live

    Folks, The Funtoo Linux 1.3 Maintenance Release 1 is now live, and contains the following updates in order to modernize the distro as well as to allow for a smoother transition to 1.4-release, currently in development: OpenSSL updated to 1.1.1b Ruby stack updated to current 2.6.3 release and moved to independently-maintained status rather than auto-generated. node.js updated to 12.3.0. webkit-gtk updated to 2.24.2. wpa_supplicant update to 2.8 to resolve some connectivity issues. updates to dev-libs/icu, libuv, http-parser, nghttp2, genkernel, eudev System updates should be pretty pain-free with no conflicts or other issues. To upgrade, simply ego sync and then emerge -auDN @world. For security reasons, all packages that use openssl will be automatically rebuilt by emerge. If you encounter complications, a bug report to bugs.funtoo.org would be appreciated. Upgrading from openssl 1.0 to 1.1.1 did require several packages to be updated and there could be a few that were missed and still need patches. Enjoy! -Daniel

    Everyone, Please check out https://www.funtoo.org/LXD -- I have begun rewriting this page to give everyone a tutorial-style introduction to LXD and to guide you through the process of setting it up. I have tested these steps myself and it should ensure a fairly pain-free setup of LXD. Note that the second half of the page isn't rewritten yet (Starting with the "features" section) but the top half is.

    Hey all, I've been really busy this month -- in Funtoo-land as well as on other projects (currently in Washington, DC area doing some work.) I've just moved 1.4-release to ALPHA status (it was "in development" status) and will be working on getting some alpha builds available. I've updated the snapshot that 1.4 is based upon and frozen 1.4 so 1.4 will be based on a June 21, 2019 snapshot of Gentoo. I will also be looking to start a non-frozen variant of Funtoo again... New Firefox and firebox-bin are now in the tree to address security issues. I've also added the latest version of dev-lang/dart to the tree. This is a very interesting language that comes from Google and recently received a major revamp to make it really nice. Here's an interesting article about it: https://hackernoon.com/why-i-moved-from-java-to-dart-8f3802b1d652 . I am using Dart to do multi-platform development using Google's flutter (which uses Dart) -- and I've enjoyed my experience so far. More updates to come... Best, Daniel

    Mininal and Optimized Stage3

    Some few days ago I knew about CloverOS that's basically Gentoo with more packages installed by default, with custom config files and also highly optimized with a bunch of flags to compile programs by the most optimized way. This caught my attention so I checked their packages and I saw that the CloverOS guys disable some flags that may break some specific packages, which is nice! Also some few days ago I knew about GentooLTO, that's an overlay for optimizing the compilation of packages. I like to try new things, so I tried GentooLTO with Funtoo on virtualbox but I got a bad news that GentooLTO doesn't work properly on Funtoo. With those discoveries about the Gentoo world, I got myself thinking about if Funtoo had a stage3 with the suckless philosophy, minimal (this is, no custom config files and without a lot of packages installed by default, unlike CloverOS do, unfortunately; only the core as Funtoo's stage3 do), without "bloat" or "bad" (or maybe unnecessary) packages (as CloverOS do by not using systemd, pulseaudio, dbus, avahi and nls), with LibreSSL instead OpenSSL (and also with musl instead glibc if possible), and configured to compile programs to be the most optimized as possible. Well, I'm a young man, I started using Linux about 5 months ago (and I started using Funtoo about 4 months ago) so I have no much experience to do all things I want on my Funtoo system. So I would like (and I think that many other people also would do) if someone that also liked theses ideas make a stage3 with theses "features". This is only an idea to try to make Funtoo more "cozy" to different kinds of people, I hope you guys liked it.

    gvfs won't compile

    My guess would be that this package is the culprit. It would be interesting to see what would happen if you get that /usr/include/util.h out of the way, if the emerge of gvfs will complete successfully then. Besides it seems that there have been quite some updates to libqmartixclient including the removal of QPointer from util.h. Could you try that out in some way? Renaming /usr/include/util.h or moving it away temporarily should be enough for that.

    1.3 Maintenance Release 1 Now Live

    I am seeing only one issue with libevent not rebuilding correctly against the new openssl. I'll be pushing a fix for this shortly... workaround for now is to manually merge or unmask 2.1.8 of libevent and merge. This builds fine against openssl-1.1.1 -- it just happens to have an old mask entry preventing emerge from seeing it.

    Mininal and Optimized Stage3

    I will say that adding more packages to the base install of Funtoo would add more attack surface to the distro. My home server gets over 100 login attempts every day on the SSH port alone. Among the many reasons why I use Funtoo is that the default install is small and while it isn't completely secure by default it has a very limited number of things I must lock down when I do an install. Could it be easier to use? Yes, it could...but it could also be far less secure by default. In my opinion the best way to make Funtoo easier to use (especially to those who are new to it) is to have those people with the most knowledge of the "Best Practices" write more documentation for Funtoo. On the other hand, it's those same people who are currently writing our bug fixes and feature improvements for the distro. It's a "Catch 22" in that regard.
