Enlightenment 17 finally available!

Yesterday the final version of illumination 17, which comes close to 12 years after starting its development.

Enlightenment, also known simply as E, is a lightweight window manager for UNIX and GNU / Linux. One of its goals is to become a complete desktop environment. It is very configurable and very visually appealing. For a time it was the GNOME window manager.

The last stable version was E16 1.0.7 (also called DR16). Today, we had breakfast with the release of the VERY anticipated version 0.17 (DR17), which is based on the new Enlightenment Foundation Libraries (EFL). DR17 is not based on DR16 but has been totally rewritten.


En Ubuntu and derivatives:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa: efl / trunk
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install e17

In Arch and derivatives:

pacman -S enlightenment17

The rest, you can download the source code and compile it.
