Gentoo Weekly Newsletter
http://www.gentoo.org/news/en/gwn/current.xml
This is the Gentoo Weekly Newsletter for the week of 13 February 2006.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
==============
1. Gentoo news
==============
  
eselect 1.0 released
--------------------
  
Version 1.0 of eselect[1], the modular configuration framework, has been 
released. For developers, eselect simplifies the creation of -config and 
-update tools in the same way that the original ebuild simplified building 
software. For end users, eselect provides a more consistent interface and, 
as a side effect, implements part of GLEP 24[2] by making it easy to find 
available configuration tools. Interested users may install 
app-admin/eselect, if they do not have it already. There is also a user 
guide[3] and a developer guide[4] available online.

Poland: Fluffy Gentoo
---------------------
  
Plusiaczek Linux[5] (roughly translates to "fluffy" in English) has been 
released. Plusiaczek is an i686 LiveCD based on Gentoo and designed as a 
general purpose distro for Polish Linux users. It ships with KDE 3.5.1, 
packing only what the author considers its most useful applications, and a 
set of others like Wine, k3b, Koffice, Scribus, Frozen-bubble, PHP, MySQL, 
Postgres and XFCE. The 577MB ISO can be downloaded from sourceforge[6], is 
entirely in Polish, but can be "remastered" to use any other language. 
Author Piotr Maliński can be contacted by email[7] or via the web site (of 
which an English version[8] is available, too).

3. Gentoo in the press
======================
  
Holehan (10 February 2006)
--------------------------
  
Florian Grässle of OpenUsability.org[9] reports about a major revamp for 
Karim Ryde's Kuroo, the KDE Portage GUI project[10]. It's undergone 
several changes that make it look much more KDEsque, and includes a number 
of new features, too.
