As some users have noticed, the python-updater package, a tool for scanning and rebuilding python packages after major Python version updates is now removed. As of Nov 28, python-updater is no longer required.  After merging new version of python ebuilds, the following steps are required:
+
 
+
== Portage rebuild ==
+
<console>
+
###i## emerge --oneshot sys-apps/portage
+
</console>
+
This ensures that unconditional dependencies are properly installed.
+
 
+
== Python Variables ==
+
In Funtoo Linux, PYTHON variables are set automatically in profile. In case PYTHON_* variables are manually set in <code>/etc/portage/make.conf</code> ,  such as <code>PYTHON_ABIS="2.7 3.3"</code>, and/or <code>/etc/portage/package.use</code>, such as <code>app-category/pkgname python_abis_3.3</code> , then change them accordingly to a version you which you upgraded. Example: <code>PYTHON_ABIS="2.7 3.4"</code>, <code>python_abis_3.4</code>. This requires updating Portage again:
+
<console>
+
###i## emerge --nodeps --oneshot sys-apps/portage
+
</console>
+
This will rebuild portage independently of package dependencies, i.e if packages with old sys-apps/portage[python_abis_3.3] dependencies still present.
+
== Changing the Python Active Version ==
+
This can be achieved by using eselect.
+
<console>
+
###i## eselect python --python3 python3.4
+
</console>
+
This command sets  python 3 interpreter to version 3.4. Choose the one you upgrade to.
+
== World update ==
+
Update your world.
+
<console>
+
###i## emerge --update --deep --newuse @world
+
</console>
