    New features in this release:
    - no more Compiz !
    - ability to hard freeze the kernel
    - decrease that pesky performance

    Coming up next in 10.3:
    - X server will not work at all (who needs it anyway right?)
    - hard freeze the kernel automatically!
    - deprecate acceleration, forward everything to CPU

    Okay, resolved quake4 issue! lib32-catalyst-utils under arch is working with a slight modification. Seems like the driver is now linked with libatiuki, and that's what quake4 was missing, along with other 32 bit games under 64bit.

    (http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=24824)

    Will stick with this driver on a second thought now that 32bit apps are okay. Wanna test direct2d, will check it soon.

    Close all windows and try again (Alt+F2: compiz --replace). It will work. Until you open a new window.

    Yeah it is. My bad :P

    I'd rather have Motif, if only the actual driver worked.

    issue with DKMS building module on jaunty is fixed too.
    Direct2D acceleration have great speed. maximizing window is now instantly.
    but it is has artefacts in picture. and some glitches.
    when i turn off compiz it get slow as hell. redraw screen took 2 second.

    And I can finally start new X session (also since previous version I believe).

    But blur is still horribly broken.
