Sam Spilsbury has just announced the release of Compiz 0.9.2 as the successor to Compiz 0.9.0, which was released in July of this year. We knew that Compiz 0.9.2 was on the way and that it would offer many improvements from new animations to plug-ins that would make you feel as though you are drunk or tripping by simulating hallucinogenic effects. Yes, really, but at least there's also useful changes like plug-ins for loading GLSL shaders for windows and GLSL shaders to be applied to an entire screen through an OpenGL Frame Buffer-Object.

The Compiz 0.9.2 release announcement can be found on the project's mailing list. "This is the second unstable release of the Compiz 0.9 series. This release represents an evolution of the 0.9 development series and brings a few minor new features and plenty of stability, speed and bug-fixes. It should be ready for general usage."

Other changes in Compiz 0.9.2 include memory leak fixes, code optimizations, allow resizing from the center of a window, and support for KDE 4.5's blur hint, among other work.
