The word is that the team will make some announcements at the EFL Developer Day taking place as part of Linuxcon Europe on 5 November. With a release likely being close at hand, The H spoke to project leader Carsten 'Rasterman' Haitzler about how the desktop environment has been progressing and what the goals are for the project."

How would you say it compares to LXDE for performance and memory-consumption?

...because that's currently sort of my gold standard for what I want. I'm always looking for new functionality that streamlines my day (for example, I may replace Openbox with AwesomeWM or XMonad) but only if it doesn't increase the CPU or memory footprint disproportionate to what I gain.

(Among other reasons, because I run the same desktop on both my monster of a main machine and the 2Ghz Celeron with 1GiB of RAM that I use as a minimum target platform for my own creations)
