The Rain In Spain…

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).


Ticket #1304: Battery indicator not updating until e is restarted

Probably caused by a testing patch I added in a month or two ago so I reverted that. It was a good patch, but I don’t have enough time to spend debugging something that already works.


I spent some more time today on usability. The Gadget config dialog was first, since I wanted to integrate my recent improvements to the gadget config dialogs:

And the other half of the view that I showed off yesterday:

Additionally, it’s now possible to change the orientation of a shelf from the contextual menu:

Finally, and I can’t really show this with a screenshot, adding a new shelf will pop up the shelf contents dialog directly after the shelf naming dialog.

    That orientation “menu” should be just a square imitating the dialog window. But I guess it would be extremely hard to have that as a menu. 😦
    Wonderful improvements, nonetheless. 🙂

    I have no idea when the release is happening, but I’m guessing you chose 12/21/12 so that if, indeed, the world does end, at least E17 will be released before then. 🙂

      Oh, and, of course, you’re doing a great job, I use E17 every day as my desktop and it so much better and more PRODUCTIVE than anything else out there!

    I’ve tried to use vertical shelf with efenniht, but it looks bad, especially pager. Maybe it’s because vertical shelves are not that common.

  4. Yo, I like the orientation thing.
    Great job! Gooooo zmike!
