    I know, but it's filled with clueless blog posts and news sites citing said blog posts as authorotive sources, whereas the devs hang out here from time to time .

    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/wiki/Release
    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)

    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

    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
