thanks for the notice; don't worry about gentoo: we're in the process
of moving to latest 2.2 for stable.

as for security updates, better refer to what is stable from
packages.gentoo.org for a more up to date view: since we're a rolling
distro, pushing security updates to stable is what is done the
quickest, while official security announcements are usually a bit
delayed (but with more information, etc.)
