Brace yourselves, because this update is hotter than the sand and bigger than the ocean. The second step in the only release process that will be longer than E17 and Duke Nukem 3D combined, The E19 Release Cycle, improves upon the glory of the momentous first step in a number of ways. Most notable of these effervescent changes:

  • Numerous translation updates and fixes
  • Greatly improved HiDPI support
  • Improved detection capabilities when playing hide-n-seek with application windows
  • Improved Applications menu generation
  • Completely unaltered NEWS file for fans of the previous release
  • Wallpaper2 module removed from tree
  • Various filemanager operations will no longer trigger crashes...maybe
  • Edge bindings can now be given the same amount of trust and responsibility as an average five year old
  • Battery popups no longer attempt to take over the user's current session by use of excessive event interception
  • Unnecessary error messages no longer appear in logs
  • SPF now rated at 32

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