Linux News Today: Enlightenment 0.20.9 Desktop Environment Out Now with 20 Improvements and Fixes
A new stable version of the Enlightenment 0.20 lightweight and eye-candy desktop environment/window manager has arrived, version 0.20.9, which might just be one of the last maintenance versions in the series.
According to the release notes, a total of 20 bugs have been addressed in the Enlightenment DR 0.20.9 update, which arrives three weeks after Enlightenment 0.20.8. Most of the fixes were reported by users during this period, and you can study the changelog at the end of the article.
However, we can tell you right now that nothing stands out, as there are only small updates to various files and documentation, an update to the Italian translation, fixes for some annoyances, and the usual improvements that will make your Enlightenment desktop experience much pleasant.
Enlightenment 0.21.0 will be out soon
At the moment of writing this article, the Enlightenment developers are working hard on polishing the final release of the Enlightenment DR 0.21.0 desktop environment, which should be out soon because, as mentioned before, we believe that Enlightenment 0.20.9 might just be one of the last in the series.
If major issues are reported by users with the Enlightenment 0.20.9 update, there might be an Enlightenment 0.20.10 release too, that if Enlightenment 0.21.0 isn’t already out. Currently, Enlightenment 0.21.0 is available for public testing as a Release Candidate (RC) build.
In the meantime, if you’re using Enlightenment 0.20.8 or a previous version on your GNU/Linux operating system, we recommend updating to version 0.20.9 as soon as possible. Enlightenment 0.20.9 should soon land in the main repos of the most popular distros, including Arch Linux.
SparkyLinux developers also announced the availability of Enlightenment 0.20.9 in the Debian-based OS’ repos. OS vendors can download the Enlightenment 0.20.9 sources right now via our website, where you’ll also be able to download the latest Enlightenment 0.21.0 development version.
