Hi

I am using webmin 1.441, but i need to update it to the newest version.

The Right Way of doing this would be to create a new ebuild in portage for the new version. In some cases copying the previous versions ebuild is enough, so you could try that. It may fail though, because of patches that cannot be applied any longer and other things. Also remember to put the new custom ebuild in an overlay. Otherwise it will be deleted on your next sync.
