DESKTOP --
The Bodhi Linux distribution has forked the Enlightenment project from its E17 release.

Bodhi Linux has been one of the notable distributions making use of Enlightenment, but the lead developer of Bodhi, Jeff Hoogland, feels the quality of the releases have been degrading. Jeff also inquired about E17 vs. E19 to his users and found that they too largely felt the quality of the recent Enlightenment releases have been going downhill and presenting new regressions.

While Bodhi 3.0 shipped with E19, Jeff decided to fork Enlightenment from the famed E17 release so they can focus on further polishing and maintaining it independent of the Enlightenment camp, which is already working towards E20.


The Bodhi Linux fork of E17 is the Moksha project. Moksha so far is a fork from E17.7 with patches that the Bodhi Linux distribution has been carrying and other additions to suit the Linux distribution. Given the project just started, right now it's not too distanced from upstream E17.
