The rename is on, new package at

Everyone should update as soon as possible. This package will be merged with that one.

Yes, the pkgver says rc2, they just haven't bothered to update it in the master branch yet. This is the final release of 0.18 + bugfixes.

Ok, i'll wait that day then. Thank you very much ;)

Yes, you still need to specify that branch if you want e19. discomfitor posted on the mailing list last Monday that he only had a couple of issues there that needed to be fixed before he merges it to master and "it's almost definitely going to happen this week". We know how software development goes, it didn't happen last week. I would expect it very soon; when it happens, I'll actually update this package so that the pkgver goes to 0.18.99 to match the other git packages.

Does this package still needs "#branch=devs/discomfitor/e19" to build e19?
I guess it builds e18-git, so what one day will become e19. Is this correct?

Yes it should, but until very recently, the "enlightenment" package in [extra] was E16, so naming this enlightenment-git would have been confusing. Since this is the -git version of the enlightenment17 package, that's the name I used. Luckily, Ronald van Haren is fixing the names in [extra] with the E18 release; when that happens, I'll rename this one, too.

@Scimmia: Sorry if if this has been asked before (couldn't find any such question), but what about the nomenclature of the package? Should the name not change to simply "enlightenment-git" if it follows the master (I have lost the overview of which branch does what for enlightenment, which is why I ask)?

Scimmia commented on 2013-12-26 17:31

@Fedes, no, I'm not. In fact, I can't. The stable release is an update to the enlightenment17 package in the main repos, so creating one here would be a duplicate and against the rules. We need to wait for Ronald van Haren to update it.

Hey Scimmia,

First, let me say thanks for maintining these great packages for one of the best desktops out there, IMO. Are you planning on creating one for E18 stable release?
