DESKTOP --
Enlightenment DR 0.20 Alpha has been released as the first step towards E20 with one year having passed since E19.

Enlightenment E20 in its current state has full Wayland support with much better, more featureful support than what's found in E19. That's why Wayland support was removed from E19 rather than for any nefarious reasons.

The Enlightenment E20 Alpha release also has new screen management infrastructure, new audio mixer work, many internal widgets were replaced with Elementary, there's now a Geolocation module, and there's better FreeBSD support all-around.
