  1. Hi All, I wanted to let everyone know about "next" release -- which is the new release of Funtoo that is intended to receive regular updates to all the latest packages. Currently, a generic_64 build of next-release is available here: https://build.funtoo.org/next/x86-64bit/generic_64/ 'next' release currently includes gcc-11.2.0 and an updated unified binutils (binutils and binutils-libs have been combined, and binutils-config has been removed.) It also has a small handful of updated packages. Our intention is to gradually add more and more auto-generated ebuilds to 'n

  2. Oops, I forgot to tell you how to set up next-release. You have two options. One is to use the stage3 to install a new next system. The other option is to convert an existing system to next-release. To convert a system to next-release: Do a world update on your system and specifically ensure you have the latest portage and ego installed. Add "release = next" to the "[global]" section of /etc/ego.conf Run "ego sync" Then run "epro build next". Now you are ready to do another world update to get gcc, binutils and other updates. PLEASE NOTE: When you do t

  4. @zoggalso, I should say that I do appreciate you connecting and communicating your thoughts. For someone who is not as involved, perception is the reality. So I will look at what I can do to improve this, and welcome your involvement as well to try to address these things. For roadmap, a lot of this has come down to LACK OF TRUST. On freenode, I had people actually doing 'silent forks' of Funtoo and ripping off my ideas. I have had people who I have told about future plans start to try to do them -- but leave me out! So many people are trying to 'make a splash' in software, and are not ne

  5. @zogg I will answer you. "From recent activity it seems like funtoo development (except autogenerated updates mostly) is getting to mostly none, including activity even in on this forum." This is an interesting and funny perspective, because it's actually just the opposite. Funtoo is more active than it has ever been, and we are starting to collaborate with Sabayon on next-gen projects, and we have been growing our Funtoo dev team too. One thing to realize is that Gentoo has 200+ developers and Funtoo up until recently has had maybe 2-3 developers at most active at a time, but o

  6. Just a note that KDE Plasma has been updated to 5.22 thanks to a PR from @r0b. Thanks, @r0b!

  7. Linux, and Funtoo, are international. His (her?) native language (very likely) may not be English. Nor is mine 😉 It also means (s)he may not be aware of 'social rules' that govern (online) conversation in English. And even so, discussions on the web always miss a vital component in human interaction: non-verbal communication. Body-language. Smileys, and by extension emoticons, are a way to circumvent this, but generally do a poor job, TBH. To be frank, there is a valid point in his comments: not every Funtoo user is a coder. Not every Funtoo user wants to use Discord, let alone be

  8. Hi, first of all thanks for answer. First of all it is interesting that you go on offense as defense and state that my questions are trolling :) I mean common, did I blame you that manpower of the project is much smaller than gentoo? I do not think in any way that you or anyone here own me anything, all of all I'm trying to understand the state and if I (maybe others who share same feeling) need to worry or re-calculate path if Funtoo is for them. Moreover I am the one who stated the shortage of developers in the first place, but somehow your answer is still that offense that I'

  9. Wait what? I am missing the point? Okay, os you basically saying that creating autogenerated ebuilds and not breaking updates is stable? Kit based when same kits have outdated versions is stable? So year+ old software would never have any vulnerabilities or bugs just because it "aged like wine?", did I get you correctly? Or maybe you also do not include those bugfixes and CVE fixes? How do you decide what updates are matter for user? Stability is not updates that are not breaking, stability is decent versions while the point of distro and it's maintainers to provide the s

  10. ☝️ There are so many packages that are outdated, e.g. xfce4 whole kit is old, a lot of packages are not updated. I am not sure that autogeneration and copying ebuilds from gentoo is "active". Moreover gentoo has bumped EAPI already and new ebuilds are not compatible with Funtoo

  11. One more thing to consider: not everyone wants to use Discord.

  12. If you check the Jira bug tracker or Discord site things are reasonably active. I think the "roadmap" is "keep making Funtoo more current and more maintainable." All the work that has gone into kits and now autogen packages has made a big difference in that respect. @drobbins pondered whether a forum was still necessary and relevant the last time he revamped the site. I felt at the time it was still important to provide that visible, easy gateway into the community for new people. But it just doesn't seem to be the kind of center of activity for the project that forums used to be so
