So E17 turned into beta. End of world is near. After alpha2, alpha3, alpha6 and alpha8, SlackE17 now provides e17 beta, along with the bug fixes EFL 1.7.3. If you like E17, you really should try to test it now, so release could be neat.
I’m still playing with the Enlightenment Foundation Libraries (which have reached the 1.7.0 milestone) and made a small minesweeper clone named elemines because it uses elementary. Most graphics are derivative work of the GPL data of Battle of Wesnoth. Free download of the 0.1 release at SourceForge. Have fun!
