The project is still active.
I know that simply because my text editor gbEdit is part of edulibreos and so I am in regular contact with Herberth, the developer.

Want to know more, see:

There, you can download .iso files for amd64, i386 and i386 light to test the edulibreos.
There is also a link to a git repository if you want the source code.


P.S. Note that there is no armhf .iso for use on Pi.

Do you have to run this DE from within a DE or can you go directly from TTY?

All you require is one of the above 3 mentioned window managers.
They then run the Desktop (Innova).

You can install it next to your regular desktop (I believe) and then choose what desktop you want to start (at least if your desktop uses one of the 3 mentioned window managers)

So, for example if you happen to run KDE then Kwin will be the window manager used by KDE.
Innova Desktop can also use Kwin and thus they can be installed next to each other.

P.S. Best approach is probably install a GUI-less fresh Ubuntu in VM, next install kwin or openbox, next install Innova Desktop.

I am giving it a try. The Gambas packager failed to create an install file on my laptop in Manjaro. Trying my other PC with Arch now. @Cogier, I realise you went for the wrong app. It is not the Innova Panel, but just Innova. The Panel is to be used inside the Innova DE :)
