buckle up. for the first time in history, a config option is getting removed instead of added.
the reasons for this removal are many, but let's go way back to the beginning and see why it was added:
oh wait, we can't because the commit message (from 2006) is
>> patches that i said were in - commit. (see my reply emails)
>> also finish off a TODO item or 2
reading through the TODO items which were also crossed off in that commit, I'm assuming that this was the "option to NOT raise on focus in click to focus" item.
== REASON 1 ==
the problem here is that there's another, BETTER option called "click raises window" (always_click_to_raise) which does the same thing, except it doesn't totally fuck you when you get a random X focus event, which happens more often than you might think.
this means that, to avoid broken behavior which might cause your windows to spastically raise for a few frames in common cases (using winlist...) with click-to-focus, you have to know that this is the default-enabled option that's fucking you, and you have to remember to manually disable it every time. if you DON'T know that this is the option that's fucking you, and you just see windows randomly raising on their own, you'll probably either ignore it or file a bug, when this is supposed to be a "feature" that actually worked in reverse, since it was intended only for disabling.
== REASON 2 ==
there's also auto-raise, which can be set to 0.0s, which is effectively the same thing since it also triggers on focus but can be configured not to fuck your window stack
== REASON 3 ==
aaand finally, this option makes any sort of pointer focus model impossible to use, since your windows will constantly be raising all over as you move the mouse
tl;dr: I'm removing it, e-dealwithit.gif
I'm sure some of you have seen the warnings generated by libpng 1.6:
"known incorrect sRGB profile". Now, this is no big deal, it's just a
warning, but I still wanted to look into it further. By my count,
there are 800 png files in Enlightenment, of which only 6 have
embedded iCC profiles, all from HP. The rest are sRGB colorspace, but
do not include a profile. There are some good arguments for this
and since this seems to be the default, I've attached the 6 files with
the profiles stripped out. As you can see, it doesn't change the image
or the colorspace, it just leaves the calibration up to the end user's
I haven't been able to find just what's wrong with the HP iCC profile
being used that the authors of libpng don't like, but it makes sense
to standardize the way profiles are handled anyway. And it has the
nice side effect of silencing warnings, even if the Debian/Ubuntu
users aren't likely to see them for a couple of years.
I can just change the iCC profile instead if you would prefer. I've
seen multiple people recommend the Argyll sRGB profile, which is still
"sRGB IEC61966-2.1" and is public domain.
In order to move composite inside the core we need to kill the
use_composite option. However in some places it is being used to switch
between ARGB and shaped windows. It doesn't make much sense to keep the
advanced/engine dialog to let the user toggle this options if we have
composite always enabledm, but lets allow the user to shoot
himself on the foot (for now).
Next step will be to move the comp module files to core so user can't
unload it anymore.

Title : Re: Re: [E-devel] [RFC] Virtual desktop window profile
It looks ok to me.
Sorry but can you re-generate the patch according to the recent ecore
merge to efl single tree?
