Enlightenment E17 is actually going to be released, claims the project. There's now a release manager responsible for getting this window manager out the door after this version of Enlightenment was started back in 2000.

On WordPress.com is now the e17releasemanager blog where the newly-designated release manager is writing about this forthcoming release. Before it can be released though, they have a lot of bug-fixing that must first be done.

The release manager also claims the records that E17 now likely holds include: longest maintained application in the EFL community, most-changed application in the EFL community, most configurable window manager / desktop, most open bug reports, and highest development turnover.

Some users within the Phoronix Forums are already discussing and betting on when the final E17 release will actually occur.
