Comment 1 J. Roeleveld 2014-07-30 06:38:00 UTC
This version is obsolete and no longer maintained by upstream.
Comment 2 J. Roeleveld 2015-01-22 13:39:36 UTC
There is no version available in Portage that matches ">1.8.005"

1.8 is old and EOL.

14.1 has been out for a while and 14.2 RC1 has just been released.
