Phoronix: Will Compiz 0.9 Be Released By Next Week?
It's been a while since last talking about the Compiz project as they simply haven't had any new releases or major developments in a while. Early this year the developers did announce that Nomad and Compiz++ would merge into Compiz and that Compiz Fusion would be dropped and other changes planned...
I feel these posts are good because it shows that Phoronix is doing book keeping. They want to be the first to get the information out there so they are keeping track of when things are supposed to happen so when the time comes they can seek out evidence on what _is_ happening.
And by posting what they find, I don't have to go find it myself. That is, if I was really looking forward to the 0.9 release I don't need to look through the git for branching that might indicate future plans.
Because C++ sucks and I wish it would die. It's too bloated and slow compared to C, C-- and assembly. (Sorry, couldn't resist )
On topic now, does anyone care to predict how Compiz will fit in once Gnome 3 is out? With KDE and Gnome having their own compositors enabled by default, Compiz would be left in a pretty tight spot (personally, I don't think I'd bother installing it at all).
Also, is there any progress on vsync support? I think x developers were working on a new protocol to allow compositors to sync to the refresh rate - does anyone know what's the status of that and whether it will be adopted by Compiz?
