Portage 1.8.1 has been released, which now includes working "emerge update"
functionality. "emerge update" allows you to keep your key Gentoo Linux system
packages fully up-to-date. To use it, first type "emerge --pretend update" to

Emerge update is a great way to keep key packages like e2fsprogs, glibc and
others fully up-to-date. It will not cause non-essential packages like
GNOME to be automatically upgraded, but I will be adding that functionality
soon -- by adding an "emerge everything" (name not finalized yet) mode.
