2020-01-28webp - promote to default onCarsten Haitzler (Rasterman)
i just noticed a pattern... we recommend in our sample confs ... to not disable webp. why keep doing that and why not just make it a dep on by default you need to explicitly disable? make lives easier and less complex. it was a good exercise to write these as it points this out... :)

2019-12-04emotion & evas: remove gstreamer 0.10 supportStefan Schmidt
We have Gstreamer 1.x support for a long time already. We used to keep this around as fallback. By now Linux distributions start to actually no longer ship the Gstreamer 0.10.x packages and upstream has not seen a release in in 5 years. Time to remove it on our side as well.

2019-12-04esacpe: remove library from treeStefan Schmidt
This has not been used for a while and is not even buildable after our switch to meson. It was a niche to start with given that it needed the PS3 OS to run on. I asked for any remaining users at EDD and on the list but heard nothing. Time to remove. Signed-off-by: Stefan Schmidt <> Reviewed-by: Cedric BAIL <> Differential Revision:

OpenMP needs to be installed in system to sucessfully compile with clang, needs libomp, while gcc use his version, libgomp. Reviewed-by: Stefan Schmidt <> Differential Revision:
2019-09-23osx - require full opengl for gl support on osxCarsten Haitzler (Rasterman)
the default still is gl-es as documented. you need to explicitly turn on full opengl to get gl support on osx because thats all the engine does. document this exception for osx (having gl magically being full on osx and gle-es elsewhere is another option but then we need different os specific defaults for this which is kind of bad in other ways).
2019-09-23build - update README and meson options to match echother in defaultsCarsten Haitzler (Rasterman)
update some defaults like move to gl-es by default, tslib off by default as this really makes efl simpler to confgure ... by default with less things to change to get stuff working.

2017-08-25efl: remove PS3 backend.Cedric BAIL
This backend has received no patch and maintenance from anyone who could actually test it over the last few years. After talking with KaKaRoTo it is best to remove it. If anyone want to take over its maintenance, you are welcome to revert this patch.

2017-04-28efl readme - add libunwind to highly recommended for err btCarsten Haitzler (Rasterman)
2017-04-28efl readme - remove liblz4 from recommendationsCarsten Haitzler (Rasterman)
it's probably not a good idea as it adds some dirty pages for a tiny lib that we already supply in our source. if your distro demands you do this - fine. but i wouldnt recommend this highly.
2017-04-28efl readme - vlc really shouldn't be recommended list if gst is defCarsten Haitzler (Rasterman)
recommending vlc and having gts default is probably not good. choose one or the other ... but not both. so remove from the recommended list just ebcause it's causing excess deps by packagers apparently

2016-08-10README: catch up with configure flags for Wayland supportStefan Schmidt
We need elput for input handling and drm here as well. Already fixed in the release notes but better catchup here as well.
2016-08-05README: clarify poppler dependencyStefan Schmidt
We actually need poppler-cpp which is packaged in various ways in different distros so better give both names here.
2016-08-05README: update build dependencies and build instructionsStefan Schmidt
Remove part where we recommend the now merged loaders and players and update build dependencies as well as recommended options.
2016-07-04efl - threads and signals - make efl work on "insane" os's with signalsCarsten Haitzler (Rasterman)
so. on linux signals are delivered to the main process thread/loop. thats' where signal handlers are set up and always run. this is sane. it's predicatble. but of course this is not the same in bsd land. there "just send the signal to any old thread and call the signal handler there" seems to tbe the order of the day. this explains why wer are losing sigchld signals in edje_cc - it's heavily threaded and bsd is just randombly picking a thread to call it on. this fixes that. in theory. i hope. i can't test, but putting it in to share @fix

2014-04-01autotools: let's be precise on how we do support ABI stability.Cedric BAIL
NOTE: We do use enum in structure. There size can be changed by changing the parameter of the compiler, this obviously will break ABI. As long as you use the same compiler (and normally any future version of that compiler) with the same set of CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS, you will have ABI stability.
