Enlightenment Foundation Libraries 1.17.0 and Friends are Out

After three months of development work we are proud to announce the
release of version 1.17 of the EFL, Elementary, Evas Generic Loaders and Emotion
Generic Players. In these 3 months we got over 1000 commits from 74 authors in
EFL alone. Around 300 more compared to the last release. Elementary has another
265 commits by 50 authors. Great job everyone! Some highlights are listed below.

----

= What's New =
Even if we had only three months a lot has happened during the 1.17
release cycle. We only cover some highlights here. For the full list please look at the
NEWS files if you are interested in the details. As usual we have been working on
fixing bugs, optimizing our code for speed and memory footprint and adding new features.

== Wayland / DRM ==
New APIs for keymap cache and left-handed mouse have been added in
ecore_wayland while a new wayland module helped to fix some bugs with
window sizing problems we have seen.

== Evas ==
The biggest changes in Evas have been adding support for hyphenation
wrap style and the addition of a TBM (Tizen Buffer Management) surface in
the Evas engine.

== Eina ==
Many of the changes in Eina during this release are towards better
support of vector graphics coming in form of our Ector library. They include
eina_bezier, eina_vector, eina_matrix and eina_quaternion updates.
Additionally we added APIs for base64 encode and decode functionality.

== Edje ==
New support for size_class as well as text_class syntax have been added and
we can now embed TGV files directly into an edje file.

== Bindings ==
JavaScript Eolian binding have been added as a first step towards JavaScript
bindings for the EFL.

== Elementary ==
Elementary features a new combobox widget in this release and the wayland
support was ported to use the new ecore_wayland2 APIs from the EFL. Smaller
changes include the use of new text and size classes in various widgets
and the ability to save to another hidden profile. The ATSPI support gained
support for key modifiers in bridge.

== Portability (Win32, MacOSX)==
This release we added clipboard and X11 shaped cursors support for
Win32 as well as system cursor support for Cocoa. More Cocoa support
is pending for the next release.
----

= Statistics =

== EFL ==
(git log --pretty=oneline v1.16.0..v1.17.0 | wc -l)
Number of commits: 1026
(git shortlog -ns v1.16.0..v1.17.0 | wc -l)
Number of authors: 74

255 files changed, 11188 insertions(+), 2589 deletions(-)
----

=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. If you are compiling the
above, please compile them in the following order:

efl
elementary
emotion_generic_players
evas_generic_loaders

Please refer to the respective README files in each release for a full
list of dependencies, explanations on configure flags and other relevant
information (Just scroll down to see the README already displayed
nicely). Recommended dependencies are for all of the above are:

bullet
libpng
libjpeg
gstreamer (1.x) (ensure you have all the gstreamer codecs you need/want.)
zlib
luajit (optional lua 5.1 or 5.2)
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
harfbuzz
systemd
libwebp
vlc (libvlc)
poppler
libraw
libspectre
librsvg

It is suggested you add the following options when building the EFL to
get a better experience:
--enable-xinput22 \
--enable-multisense \
--enable-systemd \
--enable-image-loader-webp \
--enable-harfbuzz

On linux to get framebuffer support you may want to also do:
--enable-fb
--disable-tslib

If you want wayland support also add:
--enable-wayland

At runtime if you want thumbnailing for DOC/PPT/XLS etc. files also provide:
libreoffice

https://phab.enlightenment.org/phame..._announcement/

...and it works...

Hmm 0.20.4 seem to break keyboard input in terminal programs like Terminology. A temporary solution is to revert to 0.20.3.

Python-EFL 1.17.0 release

We are pleased to announce that **Python-EFL** 1.17.0 is now released and available for download.

== Download ==
http://download.enlightenment.org/re...-1.17.0.tar.gz
http://download.enlightenment.org/re....tar.gz.sha256
http://download.enlightenment.org/re...1.17.0.tar.bz2

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 =
Lots of new features comes with this release, the most important are:
* New module **ecore_input**
* New module** ecore_con** (**Client** and **Lookup** classes)
* New module **ethumb** and **ethumb_client** (**Ethumb** and **EthumbClient** classes)
* ** Drag and drop** support in elementary
* Fixed compatibility with **python 3.5** (utils.deprecated was broken)

As always all the new features of efl and elementary 1.17 has been ported
and the usual has been done in fixing bugs and optimizing speed. (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 (1.17)
* elementary (1.17)
* python-dbus (0.83+)

If you wish to compile using the Cython sources a required dependency is:
* 0.21 >= cython <= 0.22


To install the bindings run:

(sudo) python 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
