    Phoronix: Enlightenment 0.18 Released With Many New Features

    Enlightenment 0.17 was released one year ago as of this weekend and now the developers behind this very compelling lightweight window manager have released Enlightenment DR 0.18, the next major release...

    Filemanager was indeed horrible. Don't really like the merge of compositing, but I think/hope that can be disabled at runtime.

    Good that nobody cares about you. Compositing offers only benefits and no disadvantages.

    Compositing's mandatory under Wayland, so they're prob just making that the 'go-to-standard' and be done with it. Really the cost of compositing is minimal, since you can just disable all the effects and still get double buffered rendering

    How come there's no screenshot or any sort of images in their announcement?

    E19's compositor will be wayland only (iow, it'll run without X, dunno whether or not it'll still work under X11), so you won't have to worry about that for too long.

    Extra memory consumption is a disadvantage. Does the benefits greatly out weight such a disadvantage in most cases? Yes. Is it non existent? Not at all.

    compositing under X is good too, just not usually performance wise
