I bit of a development spurt recently, closing a lot of bugs including new feature requests. Anyway, the biggest change is new network script which replaces net.lo and friends. This will not doubt please a lot of people (like me) and make others angry. These angry people can toggle the MKOLDNET flag and get net.lo back again. These same people are also more than welcome to maintain the modules themselves 😃
Anyway, although it's the OpenRC default, I don't expect it to become the Gentoo default for OpenRC until modules like PPP and wpa_supplicant gain init scripts - and in the case of wpa_supplicant some needed functionality for hotplugging.
