Release notes 

Highlights

  * Fixed a few crashes affecting a lot of people. Especially users of VMs and
    LLVMpipe.
  * Significant improvements to "Unredirect Fullscreen Windows" mode, which
    is particularly useful for fullscreen gaming performance.
    - Flickering is mostly fixed.
    - Multi-monitor unredirect is dramatically faster than previous versions.
    - Fixed automatic redirect/unredirect entry/exit bugs.
    To try it out, enable: CCSM > Composite > Unredirect Fullscreen Windows.
    The option is not enabled by default yet because there are some issues
    with driver stability, particularly with nouveau and intel.
  * Major gsettings/compizconfig bug fixes and refactoring with lots more
    test cases.
