There has been a lot of updates to Funtoo Linux 1.4 since its release -- most of these not officially announced. So it would be a good idea to make an official announcement of many of them:
Firefox and Firefox-bin 69, updated thunderbird.
New gfxcard-nvidia-legacy mix-in for older drivers.
Updated NVIDIA drivers to latest releases.
kde-plasma merge fixes.
mesa merge fixes and version bump.
ffpmeg updated to latest release, with fixes for arm-64bit.
Latest Spotify release added.
Openrc net-online major improvements.
New Language added: crystal (check it out)
debian-sources/debian-sources-lts updates and now compile using your -march settings (since custom-cflags is now enabled by default.) Prior to this they compiled using generic 64-bit optimizations on x86-64bit.
New encrypted-root mix-in to be used to enable LUKS in genkernel/debian-sources(-lts). To use, enable this mix-in and re-build your debian-sources(-lts) kernel.
Rust-kit is now at 1.37-prime
New dev-lua/lua and fixes for lua-using packages. Ebuilds using lua-5.2+ should use the new dev-lua/lua ebuild (not the legacy dev-lua/lua.)
fwupd bumped to 1.3.1
nginx, nginx-unit, dovecot, php, mariadb
