I use the new portage (2.1pre2 now) by quite long time now but today I discoverd a potential problem with this version. In my system I defined some aliases to check updates available in portage like that:
alias emerge='emerge --deep'
alias emerge-upgrade='emerge --newuse --update world'
And this generaly works just fine with old portage and new, but today because a mistake I try to do 'emerge -pv vlc' and I noticed a new use flag in this package 'freetype' (Marked by a green colour) First thing it's weird because 'emerge-upgrade -pv' doesn't show the vlc package, but acording to --newuse it should.
If any additional informations are required just ask and I try to help as soon as possible.
