Since the October release of Compiz 0.6 (and Compiz Fusion 0.6) followed by a minor update, it's been pretty quiet on the "desktop bling" front for the past few months. Today, however, the Open Compositing team is announcing the availability of Compiz 0.7.0. Compiz 0.7 introduces a core plug-in for handling certain core APIs in a similar fashion to the plug-in APIs. In addition, Compiz now has a simple object system that presents some underlying benefits. For the Compiz user, there is now multi-display support, various fixes in stacking and handling, configurable middle and right click buttons through gtk-window-decorator, and a KDE 4 port of the kde-window-decorator. The Compiz 0.7.0 release announcement can be read on the FreeDesktop mailing list.
