So today I’m officially announcing good news: my proposal for a presentation at LinuxCon Europe in November was accepted! I will be giving a 50 minute presentation on the history of E17 and the road to its eventual release, culminating with the announcement of the 100% real E17 release date. A number of other E developers will be in attendence, and there is a special EFL developer day during the conference where I anticipate we will all sit around making fun of systray — or something equally worthwhile.
For those of you wondering, this event is held in Barcelona, Spain, and NOT Prague (as some people seem to think).
