With a new day comes new announcements from the Compiz development community. Earlier this week it was announced that Nomad and Compiz++ would merge back into Compiz
and then yesterday it was made known that Compiz Fusion will be dropped
and other changes are coming down the road for this compositing window manager. Kristian Lyngstol has today shared the release plans for Compiz 0.8.0.
The code-base for Compiz 0.8 was branched back in November
but there has been no clear direction for Compiz
up until recently when talks started taking place. Kristian is calling for a feature and string freeze beginning this Friday. The final release will then hopefully occur late next week or early into the following week.
