          Am I reading this right ?. They want to provide backward compatibility to EFL1. What a strange idea - ?.
          It is time that the GTK and QT team take a look it how things work in the real world.

            So why they bump version to 2.0 if they maintain backward compatibility? If they are creating new API without getting rid of old one then... https://xkcd.com/927/

              Sounds good Enlightenment has always been the best window manager around, and I assume this is at least in part due to the libraries E devs have built & used. Sad to see people with mental health issues feeling the need to troll every announcement here.

                You can always add new API while still supporting the older API. That allows existing applications to run.

                  GTK 2 applications run just fine under Gnome 3.
                  Qt 4 applications run just fine under Plasma 5.

                  Don't make shit up.

                    And those depend on X Server which Wayland promoters want to get rid off... At least we get Xwayland for backward compatibility
