Subject: Portage 1.8.1 released

Hi All,

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
see what it will do.  Then type "emerge update" to actually perform the
updates.

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.

Best Regards,

--
