    Phoronix: Compiz 0.8.0 Has Been Released, Finally

    Compiz 0.8 was branched from master back in November, but only today do we now have the v0.8.0 release of Compiz. Since that point the future of Compiz was called into question and Compiz++ had emerged as a C++ rewrite of Compiz that also brings a separation of the Composite and OpenGL layers, a new plug-in design, and other changes. It was then decided earlier this month that the Compiz developers would release Compiz 0.8 and then go on to merge Nomand and Compiz++ back into Compiz prior to reaching a 1.0 status...

      I checked out compiz, wanted to build a Debian-package and there was no ./autogen.sh, but a cmake folder...stunned me for a few seconds.

      Then I realized that I had been on master...*g*

        Call me a noob, but I can't tell if this is good or bad news concerning Compiz. Will it still work the same?

          The sooner autotools die, the better for all of us. CMake is a suitable replacement.

            The only problem I see with cmake is having to append -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/some/path and -DLIB_SUFFIX=32/64/none
            cmake should alias the first with --prefix and the second with --libsuffix
