ExLight Linux Distro Now Based on Ubuntu 17.10, Features Enlightenment Desktop

The biggest change in this release is the replacement of the Linux 4.9 LTS kernel used in previous versions of the distribution with the more recent Linux 4.13 kernel series. ExLight Build 171112 runs a specially crafted kernel 4.13.0-16-exton based on upstream’s Linux 4.13.4 kernel. The Enlightenment desktop environment was updated as well, from version 0.19.12 to 0.20.99.0, though it’s not the latest available at the moment of writing as Enlightenment 0.22 stable release arrived last week with greater Wayland support and several other enhancements and new features.
