Compiz-Fusion Community News for February 9, 2008: KDE 4 is in.

kde4.jpgThe Community News returns again, after an absence that I will try to avoid in future P In the time between the previous community news and the last, there have been a number of new and interesting cool features added to Compiz-Fusion. The changes have taken place due to our community and our very own onestone who has added a slew of KDE 4 composite features to Compiz. Some highlights this week are:

  • KDE 4 Window decorator plasma integration

  • Show Mouse, and Area-Based maginification through the mag plugin

  • Wiimote integration

  • True blending of wallpapers and cubecaps

A number of bugs have also been fixed (Not the emerald crash at random, sorry!) which should improve your Compiz Fusion experience marginally.
