I think it's just people wanting attention, and thread hijacking to do so.

If you look around enlightenment.org I think they have a release schedule for E17 towards the end of this year.

The train is gone, E17 may as well follow the path of DNF.
That is exactly how I feel about it as well. Spot on.

I'd love to see E17 released. It's light for the amount of pretty it has.
I ran a svn build of it for some months. Was nice otherwise, but the startup was a bit slow, and there was a bug at that time that windows could only be dragged to the right, not to the left (over screen borders to next virtual desktop).
at least you know that the first one exists and is under active development. we were never sure whether dnf was either of those.

I had to stop using it because of idiot 3rd party software which killed the x server during resize/drag.
E17 was the best manager for handling multiple heads.
E16 when i tried it seemed to be more about eye candy than usability.
I've been disappointed that they decided to go with 'c' entirely.
At least they could have used very basic c++ objects, namespaces and the inherent safer type checking which IMHO is important for GUI code usability.
