[News] Linux Graphics Overview; Compiz 0.8.0 Around the Corner

Hash: SHA1

LCA: Catching up with X.org

,----[ Quote ]
| For years, linux.conf.au has been one of the best places to go to catch up 
| with the state of the X Window System; the 2009 event was no exception. There 
| was a big difference this time around, though. X talks have typically been 
| all about the great changes which are coming in the near future. This time, 
| the X developers had a different story: most of those great changes are done 
| and will soon be heading toward a distribution near you.     


[compiz] Release plans for Compiz 0.8.0

,----[ Quote ]
| The Compiz 0.8.0 release will be the first release to include what was
| formerly known as Compiz Fusion.
| A complete feature and string freeze for Compiz 0.8 is in effect from
| Friday 5th of February, 23:59 GMT. I urge anyone with patches to submit
| them ASAP, regardless of their state. 



The "Compiz Council" created

,----[ Quote ]
| As a result of the general unrest in the Compiz community, a series of
| conference calls were held to work out how to move forward. The minutes
| of these conference calls have already been published, but no official
| statements have been made, until now.


Nomad & Compiz++ To Merge Back Into Compiz

,----[ Quote ]
| Following today's Compiz Conference Call, it has been decided that both
| Compiz++ and Nomad (another branch of Compiz) will be merged back into
| Compiz.


How to run Emerald at Startup

,----[ Quote ]
| Emerald is a 3D window decorator for compositing window managers such as
| Compiz in Ubuntu. Emerald has grown into a very complex window decorator for
| 3D desktops and supports a wide variety of settings and ways to develop your
| own themes easily. Emerald is a critical component of my current Ubuntu setup
| and a few folks have asked what they need to do if they want it to run at
| startup. Here’s how:


BREAKING: compiz++ branch hits git

,----[ Quote ]
| Ladies and Gentlemen what you are seeing here may well be the future of
| compiz as we know it, in a new compiz branch called compiz++ which allows for
| really neat things like:


First There Was Compiz, Now There Is Compiz++

,----[ Quote ]
| First there was Compiz, a compositing window manager that brought very
| interesting desktop effects to Linux, and then Beryl came about as a fork of
| Compiz before it ultimately turned into Compiz Fusion. Today though, on
| Christmas eve, the world can now meet Compiz++.
| Compiz++ is a branch of Compiz that brings several new features to the table
| and there are huge changes. First off, the Composite and OpenGL layers to
| Compiz have been separated so that Compiz++ no longer is just a compositing
| window manager. If your graphics hardware or drivers don't support Composite,
| you can now run Compiz++ as a normal window manager without compositing
| effects. Other rendering back-ends could be introduced to Compiz++ so that
| the windowing manager could render to say X Render or Clutter. Compiz++ also
| provides re-parented decorations.


Compiz 0.8 Has Been Branched

,----[ Quote ]
| Compiz 0.7 was released back in February and since then we've seen a series
| of minor updates. Now though we may have Compiz 0.8 to look forward to in the
| near future.


Compiz Support For Multi-Pointer X

,----[ Quote ]
| In May we shared that Multi-Pointer X (or MPX for short) was entering the
| mainline X server. While it was merged to master that month, X Server 1.5 was
| already branched out and therefore it won't appear in X.Org 7.4, but it will
| appear in X Server 1.6 (X.Org 7.5) until next year.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
