[E-devel] Upcoming stable releases next week


Now that we have 1.11 out I'm going to do a last 1.10.x stable release 
on Monday to conclude this series.

If you have anything left that needs backporting please do it until 

Depending on much fixes will land in the new 1.11.x branches I might do 
a first stable update for 1.11 end of next week as well.

[E-devel] [PATCH] [core/efl] autotools: do not link with libGL if we have "wayland-egl" without "gl"

Hello folks,

Please consider the attached patch, which applies to latest master of
"core/efl.git" and avoids linking with libGL if we do not need it
(wayland-egl, no "gl" engine).

[E-devel] vlc plugin not working

Trying to use rage with the vlc plugin I get this:

max <at> rubino:~$ rage -e vlc ./Video/samu.avi
_on_low_battery_get_cb() Message error
org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.InvalidArgs - No such property OnLowBattery
_on_low_battery_get_cb() Message error
org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.InvalidArgs - No such property OnLowBattery
*** Error in `/opt/e17/lib/emotion/generic_players/v-1.11/vlc': free():

ERR<8067>:emotion_generic modules/emotion/generic/emotion_generic.c:845
_player_del_cb() player died.

Of course the default gstreamer plugin does work, but I want to try vlc
because gstreamer displays some artifacts when there are bright red
portion in the frame, while both the vlc and mplayer players do not.

[E-devel] Input for 1.11 release announcement


I would like to get some input for the release announcement again.

We will have the NEWS entries listed so all fixes and features that
git tagged accordingly will show up there.

I would like to get some more high level change descriptions for
bigger items or important fixes. If you did something like this for
1.11 feel free to add something to

Looking through the NEWS file entries I think getting some
descriptions for changes in

* Eolian
* Edje Edit
* Elua
* Edje dpi feature (?)
* DDS image file loader

would be nice.

For Elm I'm struggling a bit to pick out the changes that might be
worth noting. SeoZ any good candidates for Elm?
