Enlightenment DR 0.20.0-alpha Release

After over a year since the E19 release, the first E20 alpha is now ready for testing.
There were 47 contributors and over 1700 commits--more than a 10% increase since the last major release--and I'd like to thank everyone who helped along the way.

Release Highlights

  • Full Wayland support
  • New screen management infrastructure and dialog
  • New audio mixer infrastructure and gadget
  • Many internal widgets replaced with Elementary
  • Improved FreeBSD support
  • Geolocation module

The full log can be seen here.

Known Issues

  • Due to mechanics related to frametime animators in EFL releases, internal windows are currently in a mostly-broken state on Wayland

As always, stay tuned to the latest infrequent E updates on the release blog.
