    Default A Slew Of Performance Improvements To Hit Compiz

    Phoronix: A Slew Of Performance Improvements To Hit Compiz

    While publishing this morning was a large Ubuntu 13.04 OpenGL desktop performance comparison using six desktop environments and five different GPU/driver configurations, to result in 30 different data points for multiple Linux games, also announced today were forthcoming Compiz performance improvements. To land soon will be a number of performance enhancements for the Compiz compositing window manager...

    I would wait a bit for updates. Last package building went wrong and now the PPA suggest to uninstall unity :-)

    Don't forget to benchmark with suspend compositions turned on, please.

    The performance with this is absolutely fantastic. All problems related to window movement: *gone*. Ubuntu 13.04 can't come soon enough.

    Nice. Brilliant work by nVidia and Compiz devs.

    lmao, that made my day.

    anyways, nice to see today's articles were so filled with performance improvements in every direction. while i haven't used compiz in 3 or 4 years, its nice to see some improvements.

    Well, I had to at least give the latest code a spin, and yes the performance is absolutely fantastic (!!) and i can also verify that the moving windows bug is indeed fixed. This is definitely a step in the right direction for compiz

    that being said; the blank/white/black window bug for nvidia still does exist, which means that as nice as these improvements are - they don't solve one of the bugs that drove me away from using compiz, somewhat recently (after working around it for over a year!)... video;

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FNMTbFlTj4

    (in the video) I trigger the blank windows in a predictable way;

    1. minimize nautilus (or any window)
    2. use scale (but click on another window, not the minimized one)
    3. un-minimize nautilus - then nautilus (or most any other app/window) will now appear blank :\

    It's been well-over a year and a half with no solution in sight, which is why i ditched compiz. but also because of them dropping some plugins (that i was using) and lastly because of the slow moving windows, which the latest changes fix wonderfully. Maybe if they ever do manage to fix that bug i _may_ use compiz again, but until then, i would rather use a WM that doesn't do that.

    good job on the performance improvements, though. Compiz feels like it is on crack now

    With today's updates there is some new corruption with fglrx, but on the positive side Compiz fucking flies. I have already reported bugs. Here is a video if anyone cares: http://youtu.be/sdtwCFGTLbg
