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.
