    Phoronix: Beta 2 Of The Enlightenment Foundation Libraries

    A month ago there was the 1.0 beta release of the Enlightenment Foundation Libraries, which are the software libraries created to help in the development of the E17 desktop. EFL 1.0 also marks a point of API/ABI stability and is being used by projects outside of E17 proper, such as with Samsung's Enlightenment usage. Today the second beta of the Enlightenment Foundation Libraries is now available...

    It's in Enlightenment codebase, together with other official plugins (trunk/e/src/modules/connman). All you need is e_dbus compiled with connman support (default).

    What I need is basic wpa2 encryption and tlls (or something) with wep and CA certificates. The tlls is obviously for school, and there are multiple acces points with the same ssid that should all work the same as if the buildings where packed with repeaters. Ofcourse the wpa supplicant needs to automaticaly be connected to the one with the best signal strenght, without continious connection failures to the network.

    Riiiight.... :')
    so try connman, just get a new version like 0.63.

    Is there a wireless frontend? I'm currently using the official Wicd-client, but an EFL networking frontend would be nice, although the Wicd icon looks acceptable with the new black and white theme.

    Talking about the black and white theme... even with dropshadow it can get a little visualy confusing if you have multiple windows open. It's sometimes a little hard to tell where each widget ends and where the others begin. This is when I have multiple configuration windows open, which isn't uncommon when changin the settings of E.

    Other than that; great!

    I think so that people get a more uniform appearance across the entire desktop. That would be my guess.

    Guys, sorry if I'm not seeing something obvious, but why should there be a frontend for everything in toolkit zyx?

    Hey I'm not trying to spread FUD. In fact I made it my default session on my dead written 660mHz Celeron EeePC and everything runs so fast now that I decided to use it again! I am so happy about that. It beats the shit out of Openbox!

    I must say E17 has evolved greatly since my last try! The only thing that sucks about it is that nothing is EFL based so every app I run looks horrible in comparison

    I would love to see a lightweight EFL Webkit browser that launched stuff like Flash video and audio in a seperate app so that when I click on a YouTube video it runs in a YouTube app. That would make my year. Also a simple Facebook app, Google maps app, Google search widget and (already in the making) a document viewer. It would make me ditch KDE even. Not joking
    We do have a WebKit-EFL browser called "Eve", it even support HTML5 video if you compiled the WebKit-EFL with that. No support for calling external apps, but indeed it would be good. (Note: if you try eve, it comes configured with user-agent = iphone-like, so you'll get mobile pages, go to Settings and change it if you dislike)
