shadow53 Posted August 14, 2018 Report Share Posted August 14, 2018 Is there a reason Funtoo seems to be lagging behind with certain software? The one I notice in particular is with desktop environments: Plasma is only available as version 5.12.3 and LXQt is only available as 0.11. I can somewhat understand Plasma 5.12, since that is the LTS release, though I'd like to see the improvements from 5.13 on my Funtoo system. 5.12.6 is the latest LTS though, so it's still behind the current LTS. LXQt being on 0.11 means two years of not being updated, with the project now on 0.13. Is this due to following Gentoo (I notice 5.12.5 and 0.11 being the latest "stable" ebuilds, respectively) and not bringing over the "testing" ebuilds? A lack of manpower to keep these things updated? If the former, would it be possible to have non-default "current" branches of DE kits so we can get the latest stable version? I notice that I could subscribe to the KDE and Qt Gentoo testing overlays, but I assume they are called "testing" for a reason and would rather not chance random breakages from unstable build scripts.
