    Default Compiz and Beryl Future

    Phoronix News: Compiz and Beryl Future

    Quinn Storm and David Reveman just presented on the future of Composite desktops at the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit. Among the items they are planning next for the Compiz/Beryl project are new interfaces for applications, retained rendering interfaces, incrementally replace X11, standard API, and collaboration important. No new name has yet been decided for the merged Compiz and Beryl merge, but the merger should be completed within the next few months...

    That's right from what I remember... I've heard AIGLX is added functionality on top of X11, and XGL is a replacement of X11 (with added functionality). Compiz/Beryl run on top of these two technologies, so how could this window manager actually replace X11?
