Enlightenment is coming…

August 10th, 2009 by

It’s scheduled to release Enlightenment-DR17 Desktop Shell as a Christmas gift and we glad to announce the update of SOAD to the version 3.2.0. It’s a current openSUSE-11.1 with all updates and Enlightenment set as a prime GUI.

We tried to cook a nice documentation. Please examine it before you consider to download the images:
General Documentation
USB-stick readme

The EFL is compiled from official 3-rd pre-release sources and pretty stable here.
Software is updated and several nice utilities added as well. We created some modest GUI customizations/presets and hope that you like them.

Our TODO list is to fix all errors with “Ecomorph” and provide it for LiveCD and USB systems.

We wish to say “HUGE THANKS!” to “cyberorg” (Jigish Gohil) and “schaefi” (Marcus Schaefer) for their help with this release.

Have fun!

    E17 is the only threat to KDE4 or later. I am sure E17 can sweep KDE of its feet. The only problem will the steep learning curve. The way it works is completely different from Gnome/KDE.
    Looking forward to E17.

    If enlightement comes out just before new year as it is planned, I think then it’s popularity will greatly increase, and will surely be the third choice in a first day when released…after that, who knows, I think it can overcome gnome, and later kde,
    enlightement base is just clean and fast, no point of not pushing it through
