Release notes 

Major New Features

  * Single source tree: All plugins/libraries are in lp:compiz now
  * OpenGL|ES support (e.g. for ARM platforms)
  * GSettings support, as a backend for storing compizconfig
  * Buffer swapping on every frame: allowing compiz to take advantage of
    driver features such as page flipping and triple/quad buffering. This
    results in noticeably higher physical frame rates, and smoother graphics.

Disabled Features

  In order to complete support for OpenGL|ES, some plugins were not (yet)
  ported and have been disabled for now. Those are: animationaddon, bicubic,
  blur, colorfilter, cubeaddon, gears, group, loginout, reflex, thumbnail,
  stackswitch, wallpaper, trip. However, those are only 13 out of 84 plugins.
  We welcome patches to revive the disabled plugins.

    201342 - Tearing on secondary monitors even when "Sync To VBlank" is
             turned on.
    454218 - Loss of window border (white flash) when using compiz resize
             plugin, option=normal
    755842 - Non-maximized windows which sit on the border of a workspace move
             when called
    770283 - [fglrx] Title bar does not update on non-maximized windows
    803296 - [regression] Compiz Resize plugin: When "Default Resize Mode" =
             Normal, resizing is extremely slow and CPU intensive
    862430 - window flicker for a short time after switching workspaces
    886605 - Desktop, Launcher and menu bar still visible when screen locked
    892012 - Window management - When a semi-maximised a window is maximised
             and then restored, the window position jumps and window size
             changes so the the window title bar is sometimes hidden
             underneath the top bar
    901097 - Add option to use glXSwapBuffers on every frame, not just
             full-screen redraws.
    904205 - Desktop wall: Bindings for next/previous don't wrap to the next
             row
