The Rasterman: Everyone wants alpha blended this and anti-aliased that... to graft that into the rendering system we had, that relied on windows and pixmaps would have bene a nightmare... so it was time to stand back and redo that.. thus evas was born. Imlib2 was the "lets fix imlib" project section. The event handler was rather crufty in e16... that was also replaced and virtualized... overall the core code is a LOT cleaner.

2. Will the overall performance expected to be better than E16, or even than Gnome or KDE?

The Rasterman: E17 is built for sheer performance. It should be able to equal or beat anything else doing anywhere near the same level of visual work - and many things doing a lot less visual work."
