Blogging: Day 1
E18. Yes, that’s right, I said it. The version of Enlightenment which comes after E17.
I’ve been told by People In The Know that blogging is important. Well, it can’t be that important if my spell check still thinks that blog isn’t a word. Nevertheless, this blog is now a Thing, so I’m going to get right into it in a manner far more serious than the weak blog of my predecessor.
Development on Enlightenment has progressed steadily for the past month. We’ve replaced old e_dbus code with the newer edbus (v2), added a better Bluez module, an mpris2-based music player controlling module, added support for dbus menus, started a new configuration system, merged the composite module into core, and fixed dozens of bugs; I’ll provide more details on some of these items in future updates.
The important thing to note today is that we’re very much alive, and, to prove it, I’m putting out some releases on this historic first day of the blog:
E17.1 (bugfix release):
EDBUSv2 snapshot (required if using E18 snapshot with 1.7 branch):
E18 SNAPSHOT – 83479
