This is the Next-Release project, which is focused on the "next" release of Funtoo Linux. This a more aggressively updated release of Funtoo that is intended to perpetually be improved.

On 31 July 2022, it was announced that "next" release is now the recommended release of Funtoo Linux. This decision was made because next-release is more updated than 1.4-release -- in particular, it offers support for SiFive_Freedom_U740, third-generation Ryzen and Raspberry Pi 4, due to its updated toolchain.

There are other projects that are related to Next-Release but have their own project -- see Project:Media-Kit.


Where to begin

Please allow the following thread to introduce you to the next release of Funtoo. https://forums.funtoo.org/topic/4970-announcing-next-release/

It is shockingly easy to get started, should you choose to. Thanks @drobbins

To convert a system to next-release:

 Do a world update on your system and specifically ensure you have the latest portage and ego installed.
 Add "release = next" to the "[global]" section of /etc/ego.conf
 Run "ego sync"
 Then run "epro build next".

As always, whenever you make changes to your profile, perform a world update. # emerge -DuavN @world
