./wip/e17, The Window Manager and Desktop Shell

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.17.5, Package name: e17-0.17.5, Maintainer: dieter.NetBSD

Enlightenment has grown to be much more than a window manager.
It has many systems that have grown on their own to support development
of the next version (0.17) and all the effort is going into solidifying
these systems to be more than solid to build on.
This has lead to a lot of code being produced that is useful far
and beyond a window manager. The idea is to share as much code
as possible with other programs, and so a small army of shared libraries
has evolved for Enlightenment. This page attempts to cover some
of these (especially the more interesting ones) to give a good insight
into why they exist, what they do, how to use them, and where they are going.

Log message:
Patch e17 to fix an annoying crash.

Add a patch for a crash that would occur with focus-follows-mouse,
when the cursor was being warped to a window while that window was
closing. I've been running with this patch for a few weeks, and I
have submitted it to https://phab.enlightenment.org/T322 .

Log message:
Fix e17 sleeping splash and lingering tempgets.

Fix 2 issues: the e17 splash screen never woke up and stayed on
screen until a timeout. Tempget processes started by the temperature
module, would never exit, when a new instance was spawned (e.g.
after reconfiguring). Both issues had the same cause, and have the
same solution; prefix the command to run with "exec" so that the
shell used to run them is replaced by the new process and the latter
becomes the child process. This was not an issue with bash or zsh,
because these shells seem to automatically exec when called with
-c followed by a simple command. Bump pkgrevision.
