Are you looking forward to the official -- and long-awaited -- release of Enlightenment's E17 in the near future?

Since July we have known that Enlightenment E17 is actually going to be released after this enthusiast-oriented window manager has been in development since 2000. We have seen E17 alpha releases and then last week learned there's secret release plans to be revealed at LinuxCon Europe.

Evidently the Enlightenment developers have some release target in mind but have yet to publicly reveal it yet, but they claim they will do so in early November from Prague during the Linux Foundation event.

The latest on the E17 front is a new snapshot as of today.

The E17 76435 snapshot makes the usual improvements of "LESS CRASHING and IMPROVEMENTS TO NOT CRASHING", but has other benefits on top of that. This new E17 snapshot has significant improvements to the Connmann (networking) module, a slightly more intuitive user-interface to the file manager configuration UI, fixes for taking screenshots in multi-monitor layouts, right and left maximization modes, an improved gadget dialog setup, improvements for actually deleting a shelf, and other Enlightenment file manager work.

Details on this new Enlightenment snapshot release are available from Enlightenment.org.
