Subject: [gentoo-announce] Portage 1.8.1 released
Date: Sun, 30 Dec 2001 00:56:00
1 Hi All,
3 Portage 1.8.1 has been released, which now includes working "emerge update"
4 functionality. "emerge update" allows you to keep your key Gentoo Linux system
5 packages fully up-to-date. To use it, first type "emerge --pretend update" to
6 see what it will do. Then type "emerge update" to actually perform the
7 updates.
9 Emerge update is a great way to keep key packages like e2fsprogs, glibc and
10 others fully up-to-date. It will not cause non-essential packages like
11 GNOME to be automatically upgraded, but I will be adding that functionality
12 soon -- by adding an "emerge everything" (name not finalized yet) mode.
14 Best Regards,
