March 2018 Update

First, I am changing the title of these posts from “changelog” to “update.” It just makes more sense, since it’s more than a simple changelog. Second, having a moment of weird paranoia where it seems like at least two things I could have sworn were in the GentooStudio overlay are now not there. I noticed…
