?
Is it right english? Find out / get to know / how to - (russian Узнать). It's just one good word.

On last world update I noticed emerging gentoo-sources. What will be the future version of gentoo (kernel version). Maybe it is written on gentoo.org site?

Code:
localhost linux # emerge -s gentoo-sources
Searching...   
[ Results for search key : gentoo-sources ]
[ Applications found : 1 ]

*  sys-kernel/gentoo-sources
      Latest version available: 3.5.7


Is it true? What's the official way of doing so? I.E. GLOBAL VERSION?

You can see all the versions of gentoo-sources available for install here : http://packages.gentoo.org/package/sys-kernel/gentoo-sources

The last available version is the topmost in the list. (and is generally ~arched)
Stable versions are in green, the last stable version is the topmost green.

Then, from this, we cannot tell what future gentoo-sources stable will be. Who knows ? Its maintainer Mike Pagano ? I am even not sure.

If you want to know a week in advance, you can also go there : https://bugs.gentoo.org/buglist.cgi?product=Gentoo%20Linux&component=Keywording%20and%20Stabilization&resolution=---&list_id=1368642, the request for stabilization of a new version should be listed.

In addition to the packages website, you can also use eshowkw (from the gentoolkit package) and portageq to get that information.

To show the version of a package that is going to be installed:
Code:
# portageq best_version / gentoo-sources

To show all stable and unstable versions of a package:
Code:
# eshowkw gentoo-sources
