Enlightenment E17 Alpha 5 Works On Its Default Theme
Written by Michael Larabel in Free Software on 24 November 2012 at 11:16 AM EST. 7 Comments
New Enlightenment E17 Alpha releases are coming out at a record pace considering that it's taken a decade to get to the first alpha stage. E17 Alpha 4 came just three days ago and there's already a fifth alpha now available.

In addition to E17 Alpha 5, there's new stable EFL (Enlightenment Foundation Libraries) release packages too. "The EFL had a new minor series of updates in order to fix bugs that were preventing the E17 alphas from correctly building. The only packages which had bug fixes were Edje, Eet, Elementary and Evas, but new tarballs have been spun for all the EFL in order to keep their version synchronized."

E17 Alpha 5 changes include:

- More translation updates
- New default theme is more complete
- Entry widgets will no longer sometimes lock E when resizing
- First-run wizard is now smarter with regard to the signals it listens to

Fetch the packages from Enlightenment.org.
