    Phoronix: Compiz 0.7.6 Released, New Improvements

    Just shy of two months since Compiz 0.7.4 was released, Compiz 0.7.6 is now available. This update has a rewritten Place plug-in to dramatically improve multi-output behavior, configurable multi-output behavior, removed plane plug-in in favor of the wall plug-in, removed cube wallpaper painting in favor of the Compiz Fusion wallpaper plug-in, panel and desktop selection mode is now available in the switcher plug-in, and improved painting behavior...

    That can't be fixed from compiz, compiz uses viewports, metacity uses workspaces, they work very differently from each other

    Ir recommend using a different pager/workspace-switcher from awn or kiba-dock

    Improve This

    I've been experimenting with compiz, xgl, beril, CF since they rolled out. ATM I use Heron+Gnome+CF with mobility radeon, and yes it's improved over the years but there was always a bug with the keys.

    Sometimes you can't type to boxes, you have to keep hitting ESC, tabbing, clicking whatever to put it back normal or CTRL+ALT+BS of course in last case.

    Beyond this when your system overloaded eg compiling tools, kernel and u typing to forums just like now, it can easily lagg in for seconds, what you don't experience without compiz.

    So keep up the good work guys.

    phible: To an extent it has been fixed. The only thing that doesn't work for me is drag/drop window placement within the switcher, but the Expo plugin is so much nicer for that task

    I'd say yes, and ages ago... at least clicking on a workspace in the applet now properly twists the cubde to the edge in 8.04.

    I'd say you're missing out on a lot (I'll try kwin again though when they make a release for "end users").

    Always had problems with it running on KDE... it was ok when it worked though.

    KWin4 ran without a single problem since its first beta releases, so I think I'll just sit and wait for KDE 4.1 and use the desktop effects that come with it.
