Hello fellow devs,
We're pleased to announce that EAPI 4 is now available and allowed in
the main tree, in ~testing ebuilds
New features in EAPI 4 include REQUIRED_USE, pkg_pretend, REPLACING_VERSIONS
and REPLACED_BY_VERSION and various other interesting changes and fixes.
To find out more about EAPI 4, you can read the latest version of the Package
Manager Specification . A shortlist of all the changes is also available
Please note that at this moment only ~testing Portage supports EAPI 4. This
means that you'll have to avoid any stabilization of EAPI 4 ebuilds
until a newer version of Portage is stabilized.
Many thanks to all the people who worked to make EAPI 4 possible!
