According to Distrowatch there is now a new "Stable" version of Gentoo, issued today.

When will it be available for download and installation?

I see it has (is to have?) OpenOffice.org 2 - which I badly need. Versions before 2 are not able to deal with unicode and foreign script characters properly.

Gentoo does not go by versions. A new release just means a new live CD.


Also, openoffice 2 is in portage.

I'm not too sure. Also, I just looked at the DistroWatch page and from what I understand, it is trying to say as of 02/13/06 which packages are in +arch (stable) and which are in ~arch (testing).


[edit] Now that I think about it, I think the 2006.0 release was scheduled for this month.
