Hi science mates,

I just released g-octave 0.3, that come with some cool features:

Modular support for package managers
g-octave can use any of the 3 package managers available for Gentoo
Linux right now (Portage, Paludis and Pkgcore). The user can change
between the package managers easily, changing a configuration option.

Optional logging
g-octave can write a log file, with the log level and location
selected on the configuration. If the log level is omitted, the
logging feature will be disabled.

Update of installed packages
A new command-line option was introduced to g-octave: --update. With
this option the user will be able to try to update some package for a
new version, or to try to update all the installed packages.

Override configuration options from the file '/etc/g-octave;cfg' with
environment variables
g-octave can understand environment variables from the "GOCTAVE_" name
space. The environment variable will be: GOCTAVE_ + uppercase
configuration. e.g. GOCTAVE_OVERLAY. All the options available on the
configuration file can be override.

More information can be found on the documentation:

The updated ebuild is already on the science overlay.

Comments and suggestions are welcome!
