Alpha, Beta, et Release

Et voila la release annoncée par l’alpha et la béta des semaines passées.

On peut lire sur la liste de diffusion « devel » un message  de raster qui annonce la sortie des versions 1.1 et 1.5 (pour eet) des EFL.

Cette version est la révision 65800 du svn.

On note l’entrée en lice de deux petits nouveaux (qui ne le sont pas vraiment) la première version de Expedite (le benchmark d’ evas) et de Evas Generic Loaders (qui permet de charger des images par un processus separé).
