Enlightenment E17 Is Another Step Closer To Release
Phoronix: Enlightenment E17 Is Another Step Closer To Release
Are you looking forward to the official -- and long-awaited -- release of Enlightenment's E17 in the near future?..
Wasn't E16 released just a couple of years ago?
the LinuxCon event is not in Prague but in Barcelona...
not, it was released far before.

e17 suffers from KDEsitis, big fat badly drawn icons all over the place, text and icons badly coppled together
ultra complex, confusing, configuration windows
looks like it was made by a 7 year old with crayons, crude and amateurish
the only good thing is that it's really fast and snappy, I gather the fastest one I've tried
but here's what a lightweight desktop should look like, clean, consice, simple and professional
Don't blame the devs if you can't configure it. There's always the clearlooks theme for E, if you want something much less bling.
And there's many others...
there is a connman module, iirc

'elsa' has been renamed as 'entrance' (like the old session manager) and it is still alive
text editor : there is one which is currently underdevelopment, but we are lacking manpower. The dev is also a core dev, so he has not a lot of time.
i'm myself working on a multi doc viewer ala okular. It's alive too
there is also a new game : http://brunodilly.org/blog/escape-from-booty-bay/ which is more a proof of concept for the EFL and games
