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!

Any links to mobile phone apps using the Enlightenment libraries? Can apps be compiled for iPhone, Android NDK or webOS PDK? Is hardware acceleration via OpenGL ES supported? I ask because these are things that Qt has been demonstrated to be able to do.... But if Enlightenment can do them, it's nice to know there is an alternative...
