Enlightenment - About

About Enlightenment We are dedicated to providing advanced graphical libraries, tools, and environments. Currently, the project is made up of three different components: Enlightenment DR16, Enlightenment DR17, and the Enlightenment Foundation Libraries. While we are best known for the Enlightenment Window Manager itself there is a long history of providing advanced libraries and tools to support the window manager and other applications, such as Imlib, Imlib2, and FNLib which extend far beyond the window manager itself in scope. Today, in development toward the DR17 Desktop Shell we have created an entirely new set of libraries and tools that provide more power and flexibility than any other group of graphical libraries available, The Enlightenment Foundation Libraries.

What is Enlightenment? Enlightenment. What is Enlightenment?. Some people affectionately refer to Enlightenment as E because typing or saying the whole word is a bit of a mouthful. Early in its history, which began back in 1996, E was just a window manager for X11. Since then, E has now become much more. In the process of building the next generation of the window manager, we have created a suite of libraries for doing data storage and retrieval, scene-graph rendering with a canvas, theme encapsulation, compiling and demand-loading, event loop, inter-process communication, specification handling, virtual machines, video codec abstractions, widget sets, and more.
