Graphics, User Interfaces As an answer to someone asking whether Unity will require a working OpenGL stack to operate in Ubuntu 11.04 "Natty Narwhal", Mark Shuttleworth announced that Canonical would offer an optional, QT-based, "2D" implementation of Unity. Here is a video, too.

"Well, maybe it's because EFL it's nearly abandoned if compared with QML and it will never be stable software?

I don't know what other developers think, but I had my bad time already working with non-supported libraries..."

We are releasing the EFL next week or in 2 weeks.

comparison with QML (on set top box) : QML couldn't just draw and scroll a list with 6 items (with no graphic options, that is, it was roughly just a list of strings). No problem with the EFL and a bunch of graphics effects.

So, QML is just way slower than the EFL.

The EFL are used in around 2 millions of set top boxes, they are supported by several companies. Not a lot, though, unfortunately.

They are quite stable and not at all abandoned. Thanks for the troll.
