It’s been more than a year since the last gnustep major release, and while unstable packages were available in portage, I kept them in package.mask (revdep rebuild needed for every single gnustep application, API changes, …). But that meant new applications updates (gorm for example) had to be kept under p.mask too, as they required the unstable versions).
Now the new stable release is finally here, I’ll unmask it soon (just checking most application still compile). Be warned though, that both gnustep-base and gnustep-gui will force you to run revdep-rebuild. Maybe it’s time to test the new and shiny cairo backend!
