Compiz Fusion

June 29, 2007

The Developers of Beryl and Compiz
have united their efforts in creating a compositing window manager that uses OpenGL to render some awesome 3D effects. So Beryl is thus discontinued, but is still supported. The announcement here on the Compiz mailing list indicates that the new merged community has named the project Compiz Fusion. The project currently has a development version that you can install, but the official release is not out yet. Plans are also being made to add it to Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon 7.10 (afaik). I installed it last night (Compiz Fusion that is) simply to test it out. I was expecting a fairly problematic install, however things went along just well following this guide.
