    Phoronix: Enlightenment E17 Running On Wayland

    While the GNOME and KDE projects are still working towards making their desktops run on the Wayland Display Server rather than an X.Org Server, the Enlightenment project is also working towards bringing E17 window manager and libraries to Wayland. In fact, they have the first visible signs of success!..

    its just a red rectangle dude.

    this isn't E17 running btw, that evas demo is just the red rectangle shape.

    another winning phoronix article, @michaellarabel, you just keep digging getting shittier at journalism even for a click through merchant.

    /me cant wait until it hits /.

        Quick question: wayland has any advantage in terms of performance over xorg?

          Last I heard, there's nothing going on with E17 and Wayland more than some simple playing around - which does not mean that it's being planned proper for EFL or E17.
          In other E17 news, several components just had a "release" update. I use quotes because I normally pull from svn due to the constant changes in everything.

            isn't evas the backbone on which every E17/EFL lib or component is built upon???

            it seem like quite a step if the above is true

              its a red rectangle. wow.

              reading the article you think gtk/qt were months behind when they've already been shown to render widgets and dialogs box and apps.

              e17 this isn't by any stretch of the imagination.

                e17 and efl libs even thought a different thing are somehow perceived to be the "same" (ie there was a misconception when efl 1.0 was released)

                yes the title is a stretch but thats Michaels style and you know it

                  OK, I'm going to show my internet BM by hijacking this thread:

                  What actual advantages will wayland bring over Xorg for developers (in general) and for users. I've heard lots of fantastic things (aka Wayland will allow hot gpu switching) but no one has really pointed out what Wayland will change.

                    There's this awesome site called Google. It allows you to enter search terms and most of the time you actually get meaningful stuff back! You should try it some time.

                        comment from the dev on G+:

                        Eh, it's a start. I have it doing images now, and the canvas library portion is very near completion. Next step is to port ecore/ecore_x stuff to Wayland, then we can actually have efl apps running Glad people like it tho !! - Cheers, devilhorns
                        nice stuff

                          How about putting out an actual release version? E17 is pre-release since 10 years…

                            Oh no, It became pre-release just recently, this or last year I think. Before that was nothing but working snapshots. And yeah 10 years for release is quite a lot.

                              We currently focus on the EFL right now (they will be released as 1.1 this week-end or next week), then we will focus on e17 :

                              http://trac.enlightenment.org/e/quer...ghtenment+0.17

                              There are not a lot of devs, though Hence the slow development. Any help is welcome (even bug reports)
