Thanks for the ping, but I think I will wait for the actual release.

I'd really love to be a tester because I have always had high hopes for Enlightenment, even way back when the hardcore thought it "bloated" which was so off the mark. Several months ago there were some graphics bugs that were really problematic for many. Do you know if those have been solved? If I am too vague I will check my notes and be more specific but it was rather widely reported I soon discovered after experiencing it.

Please don't take this post as negative because I am very excited with all the renewed focus on E, mainly due to Samsung I suppose, but whatever I will gladly do Beta.. just not enough time or motivation for Alpha. I am particularly interested in the option to switch from full GUI to tiling, assuming i understand that correctly.

I've run into a Chromium-based tool tips lockup bug (https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium...tail?id=381732) under E19 and E20, other than that I haven't run into problems. E21 beta was released today but I've reverted to E20.

Hello, boyz & girlz!

I need some experienced help here!
I'm running current 64-bit and decided to give it a try with E-20, so I followed Ryan's instructions from Git page
and voila, here it is!
But... There's no sound, at all! I guess you already now that Pulseaudio is 'taking care' of
sound in -current so... I don't have a clue what to do about it.
Thanks for any eyeopener!

Sound works here, but I'm using the ALSA backend. Have you tried switching to the ALSA backend in the Mixer settings?

Hi, mats_b_tegner.

I did, but it makes no difference.
After playing around for an hour or so, looks like I have to rebuild the whole package.
I'm experiencing too much freezing here.
