Description John Helmert III gentoo-dev Security 2020-07-20 02:10:14 UTC
Latest in tree is 3.6.2 which appears to have been released in about 2013 according to the dates here[1]. Latest upstream is 8.6.0, released this month (July 2020). After going through all of the changelogs since 3.6.2, there are many potential crashes and data loss problems that have been fixed since 3.6.2, but I'm unsure if much of that affects the versions we have in-tree.

    dev-java/lucene: add new lucene versions for scilab
    At the moment this only builds with USE="-modules"
    because we are missing a dependency. Will add the
    keywords if/when I get the dependency working
    Also added a fixed ebuild for version 3.6.2,
    the one in ::gentoo fails with USE="contrib"
    see linked bug

    Most of them work though, added keywords
