According to release announcement, following are major highlights of this release.
1. A New Method for Packages Update
  • Better reliability
    Each mirror stores version history, thus allowing either to update from any existing mirror or to create a local mirror.
  • Updates are faster
    The update tool selects the fastest mirror.Update configuration defaults to parallel fetching and installation. Revdep-rebuild will not be called by cl-update unless enabled explicitly.
  • A higher level of testing
    All binaries are tested on the testing mirror before being committed to the master.
  • Less traffic consumption
    Portage will not be synchronized if no updates are available.
2. Common binary repos
  • Distribution profiles were unified. You are free to choose between three brand new flavours, each with USE flags adapted to different needs. Over 2500 popular packages come as binaries.
