General Development Enlightenment version 16 was one of most configurable window managers back in late nineties (and still is). For the next version however Rasterman and friends decided to create a complete desktop shell instead of just a simple window manager. Enlighenment version 17 is therefore based on a set of graphical libraries which can used for other applications as well. But do we need another set of libraries when QT and GTK+ are already mature and stable? Depending on your needs, you might find that using the Enlightenment libraries is truly an enlightening experience!

rasterman has been said to be an awesome programmer doing wonders but I don't think any post gdi32 graphic toolkit used today lacks damage/dirty information (gdi32 has at least some form of it). Java Swing has it, irrc I used an option in kde4 to monitor the redraw regions .. Any experienced dev can confirm that ?
