Window Managers Enlightenment has been released, and it includes some bugfixes and speed improvements. Remember that E16 is the 'old' Enlightenment; E17 is the new one, and there's a short article on HowtoForge explaining how to set it up: "Enlightenment 17 or E17 as it is generally called, is a cool Window Manager for X. The latest stable version of Enlightenment is E16 ( In this article we will talk about the latest CVS build available (0.16.999.023)."

RE[2]: Why does it take so long?

Member since:

When you have <10 developers, all of whom have wives, girlfriends, jobs and other interests, the development pace is slow.

However, things are quite stable and most major features you need in a WM have been finished for some time. I've used it as my only WM at both home and work for over a year (and at home for much longer, but I'm a developer, so thats sort of a given).

Mostly, though, its a matter of personal taste. No other WM feels quite right for me. (and the API's are lickably clean, imo).

Give it a shot, let us know what you do/don't like, and if its not right for you, there are plenty of other alternatives.
