A new stable version of the Enlightenment 0.20 lightweight and modern desktop environment/window manager has arrived, Enlightenment 0.20.10, which is the last one in the series.
Yes, you’re reading it right, the development cycle of the Enlightenment 0.20 series has come to an end, and if you’re still using this version on your GNU/Linux operating system, you are urged to either upgrade to the Enlightenment 0.20.10 maintenance release or move to the newest stable branch, Enlightenment 0.21.0.
According to the release notes, Enlightenment 0.20.10 addresses a total of 34 bugs that have been reported by users since the Enlightenment 0.20.9 update announced back in June 2016. As usual, if you want to know what’s new in this version, we recommend that you check out the full changelog at the end of the article.
EFL 1.18.0 Beta 1 out now
Now that the final release of the Enlightenment 0.21.0 desktop environment has hit the stable software repositories of various GNU/Linux operating systems, we can’t find a reason why you should stick with the Enlightenment 0.20.x series and update to the Enlightenment 0.20.10 release.
In the same manner, distributions that are still using an Enlightenment version from the 0.20.x series are also urged to upgrade to the 0.21.0 branch as soon as possible so that users can enjoy the latest, most stable and advanced version of the desktop environment/window manager.
Of course, you can also update manually, by downloading the Enlightenment 0.21.1 sources right now via our website. In the meantime, we would like to inform our readers that the first Beta build of the upcoming major EFL 1.18.0 component, which will be included in Bodhi Linux 4.0.0, is now ready for public testing. Details can be found in the official release announcement.
