Enlightenment Foundation Libraries 1.21 Release


Stefan Schmidt posted the following on the Enlightenment users mailing list:
Quote:
After 12 months of development work we are proud to announce the release of
version 1.21 of the Enlightenment Foundation Libraries. In these 12
months we got almost 5000 commits from 96 authors. Great job everyone! Some highlights
are listed below.

== Download ==

----

== What's New ==
We only cover some highlights here. For the full list please look at the
NEWS file, if you are interested in the details. As usual we have been working on
fixing bugs, optimising our code for speed and memory footprint and adding new features.

== Wayland, DRM and Input ==
The wayland protocol implementations still remains a highly active area
in EFL. This cycle we have seen the addition of an EFL specific hints protocol for setting aspect
on surfaces and the support of xdg-shell vfinal. Our drm2 and libinput usage gained support for setting
pointer acceleration speed.

== Edje ==
To aid the, sometimes very hard, debugging of edje files an embryo echo
command was added.
It is now also possible to reference images from other edje files. The
biggest change however is the possibility to have edje_cc verify namespace usage during compilation .
This also has been enabled in tree (with the whitelisting of some exceptions we can not change). We
hope this will help to avoid these kind of problems for the future.

== Evas ==
The Eavs subsystem added async canvas text layout functionality and
improvements on font handling. A scale feature for embedded bitmap fonts and support for
different H/V font DPI has been added. Last but not least we added align=end in textblock for
putting a text at the opposite side of LTR/RTL.

== Elementary ==
A new text on patch widget was introduced this cycle together with a
item pin feature in genlist.
Additionally elm_entry was enhanced with a prediction hints API.

== Eolian ==
Eolian improved its parsing in various areas. One being deferred parsing
of inherits as well as better static checks of the given eo files. New API's have been added
for part enumeration and to query information about objects.

----

== Statistics ==
(git log --pretty=oneline v1.20.1..v1.21.0 | wc -l)
Number of commits in 1.21: 4954
Number of commits in 1.20: 1665

(git shortlog -ns v1.20.1..v1.21.0 | wc -l)
Number of authors in 1.21: 96
Number of authors in 1.20: 64

(git diff --stat v1.20.1..v1.21.0 | tail -1)
3217 files changed, 281935 insertions(+), 137611 deletions(-) in 1.21
1298 files changed, 69378 insertions(+), 31364 deletions(-) in 1.20

----

==Building and Dependencies==
If you have an existing EFL or Elementary install, you may wish to
delete its header files and libraries before compiling and installing to
avoid possible conflicts during compilation. Please refer to the README
for a full list of dependencies, explanations on configure flags and
other relevant information. Default dependencies are:

* bullet
* libpng
* libjpeg
* gstreamer (1.x, 0.10 support optional. Ensure all codecs you want are installed.)
* zlib
* luajit (lua 5.1 or 5.2 support optional)
* libtiff
* openssl
* curl
* dbus
* libc
* fontconfig
* freetype2
* fribidi
* libpulse
* libsndfile
* libx11
* libxau
* libxcomposite
* libxdamage
* libxdmcp
* libxext
* libxfixes
* libxinerama
* libxrandr
* libxrender
* libxss
* libxtst
* libxcursor
* libxp
* libxi (2.2 or newer)
* libgl (opengl/glx or opengl-es2/egl)
* giflib
* util-linux (limbount + libblkid)
* systemd / libudev
* poppler / poppler-cpp
* libraw
* libspectre
* librsvg

Recommended requirements (highly recommended):

* harfbuzz
* libwebp
* libunwind (where available)

Enable these with configure options:

<file>
--enable-xinput22 \
--enable-systemd \
--enable-image-loader-webp \
--enable-harfbuzz \
--enable-multisense \
--enable-liblz4
</file>

On linux to get framebuffer support you may want to also do:

<file>
--enable-fb
--disable-tslib
</file>

If you want wayland support also add:

<file>
--enable-wayland \
--enable-elput \
--enable-drm
</file>

At runtime if you want thumbnailing for DOC/PPT/XLS etc. files also provide:
libreoffice
Edit: EFL 1.21.0 seems to compile and work under -current. No issues so far.

Rage 0.3.0 and Terminology 1.2.1 now require the meson/ninja build system. I just tested to compile both if them under -current but I need some help to modify the slackENLIGENTENMENT build scripts. Anyone have any hints how to add:
Code:
meson build
cd build
ninja
ninja install

For Terminology, something like in this SlackBuild For rage that looks similar according to the INSTALL file.

PS Maybe I misunderstood and your question is for other software as you already built those?

IIRC roughly speaking meson replaces cmake and ninja replaces make, I think.

Okay thanks for the SlackBuild-script for Terminology. I have only built local binaries of Terminology and Rage. I have yet to make Slackware packages.

Python-EFL 1.21.0 release

Davide Andreoli announced the availability of Python-EFL 1.21.0. Seems to compile fine under -current.
Quote:
= Python-EFL 1.21.0 release=
We are pleased to announce that **Python-EFL** 1.21.0 is now released and
available for download.

== Download ==

http://download.enlightenment.org/re...-1.21.0.tar.xz
http://download.enlightenment.org/re....tar.xz.sha256

The packages is also available on pypi, to install just use:
```
pip install python-efl
```

For convenience the tarballs contain both the Cython sources and generated
intermediary C sources, meaning you **do not** need Cython to compile the
bindings. Full cython sources are also publicly accessible from our git
repository at:
https://git.enlightenment.org/bindin...ython-efl.git/

More information about the python bindings can be found at:
https://phab.enlightenment.org/w/pro...dings_for_efl/

---

= What's New =
As always new features of EFL 1.21 have been ported and the usual has been
done in fixing bugs, optimizing speed and improve documentation. (see
**ChangeLog** in the tarball for the full list of changes)

---

= Building and Dependencies =
If you have existing Python-EFL installed you may wish to uninstall them
before compiling and installing to avoid possible conflicts during install
and/or runtime.

To build the bindings you will need the following libraries:
* python (Python 2.6+/3.2+)
* efl (1.21)
* python-dbus (0.83+)

If you wish to compile using the Cython sources a required dependency is:
* cython (0.28+)


To install the bindings run:

(sudo) python setup.py install

or:
(sudo) python3 setup.py install

To generate the documentation locally you need:
* sphinx (1.1+)
* graphviz (optional)

To build the documentation:

python setup.py build_doc

For more information on available build options see:

python setup.py --help

---

I've been experiencing crashes using EFL 1.21.x. Reverting to EFL 1.20.7 seems to solve it for the time being...

Is it a version issue? Should we revert?

I don't know yet. I guess I have to compare the build-scripts. Seems to be related to a -current upgrade on October 19th: https://github.com/ryanpcmcquen/slac...ment-431700510

Edit:
There are a lot fewer configure options set in the efl.SlackBuild on SBo:
Code:
./configure \
  --prefix=/usr \
  --libdir=/usr/lib${LIBDIRSUFFIX} \
  --sysconfdir=/etc \
  --localstatedir=/var \
  --mandir=/usr/man \
  --docdir=/usr/doc/$PRGNAM-$VERSION \
  --disable-systemd \
  --build=$ARCH-slackware-linux
slackENLIGHTENMENT efl.SlackBuild:

  --enable-harfbuzz \
  --enable-fb \

Terminology 1.3.2

Boris Faure just announced Terminology 1.3.2:
Quote:
Hello fellow Terminology enthusiasts!

While working on Terminology 1.3.1, I introduced a regression:
clicking on links had no longer any effect. Release 1.3.2 fixes that
issue.

Here is the ChangeLog:

== Fix ==
* Clicking on links works again

Due to issues with enlightenment.org infrastructure, I am hosting the
tarball and will also do that on the next releases.
It can be found at https://fau.re/terminology/terminology-1.3.2.tar.xz

Enlightenment Foundation Libraries 1.22 alpha 1

Stefan Schmidt posted the following announcement on the Enlightenment users mailing list 2019-03-04:

Quote:
This alpha release for 1.22 starts the freeze period and stabilization
phase for the 1.22 release cycle. There are still problems to fix and we
appreciate any tester of this to let us know about problems seen. This
goes for packaging, testing with efl based applications, integration
into your systems, etc.

For packagers we have one bonus item to test. 1.22 will be the last
release using our autotools build system. From 1.23 onwards we will use
meson, which is already in place and working well for developers. To
ensure early on testing for packagers as well we produced a tarball with
meson for this alpha release as well. Find it
[[https://download.enlightenment.org/r....tar.xz|here]]
([[https://download.enlightenment.org/r....sha256|sha256
sum]]). The official tarball for 1.22 will still be produced with
autotools and the link can be found below.
