compiz 1:0.9.7.8+bzr3121-0ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

compiz (1:0.9.7.8+bzr3121-0ubuntu1) precise-proposed; urgency=low

  * New upstream stable branch snapshot.
    - Includes all the previous cherry-picked fixes
    - Fix crash when imgsvg is loaded, due to missing symbol
      (decor_apply_gravity from libdecoration). (LP: #956986)
    - Fix multiple window placement bugs (LP: #974242) (LP: #976032)
    - Fix window handle leak causing gradual degradation in desktop
      performance (LP: #1050610)
    - Some decoration pixmaps get leaked on window resize, due to race
      conditions between gtk-window-decorator and the decor plugin.
      (LP: #1057263)
    - Avoid a NULL dereference and give a useful error message instead.
      (LP: #944653)
    - Fix leakage of destroyed_pixmaps_table, containing pointers to freed
      decor_t's which could result in a freed GHashTable being passed into
      g_hash_table_remove and causing a crash. (LP: #1060171)
  * debian/patches/compiz-package-gles2.patch:
    - Drop the NEWS file, update decor.cpp part to build with new upstream
      code.
  * debian/patches/revert_fix_933776_955035.patch:
    - Cherry-pick the revert from upstream since the bug fix is not
      suitable for SRU as is
  * debian/patches/revert_fix_994841.patch:
    - Cherry-pick also this revert as non-SRU material, not relevant
      to users
  * debian/libdecoration0.symbols:
    - Update with latest symbols

compiz: OpenGL window and compositing manager

 Compiz brings to life a variety of visual effects that make the Linux desktop
 easier to use, more powerful and intuitive, and more accessible for users
 with special needs.
 .
 This metapackage provides the components necessary for running compiz. It
 provides the compiz core, a set of standard plugins, a window decorator using
 the Gtk toolkit and the files necessary to integrate compiz with the GNOME
 desktop environment.

compiz-core: OpenGL window and compositing manager

 Compiz brings to life a variety of visual effects that make the Linux desktop
 easier to use, more powerful and intuitive, and more accessible for users
 with special needs.
 .
 Compiz combines together a window manager and a composite manager using
 OpenGL for rendering. A "window manager" allows the manipulation of the
 multiple applications and dialog windows that are presented on the screen. A
 "composite manager" allows windows and other graphics to be combined together
 to create composite images. Compiz achieves its stunning effects by doing
 both of these functions.

compiz-dev: OpenGL window and compositing manager - development files

 Compiz brings to life a variety of visual effects that make the Linux desktop
 easier to use, more powerful and intuitive, and more accessible for users
 with special needs.
 .
 This package contains the headers and libraries needed to compile compiz
 plugins.

compiz-gnome: OpenGL window and compositing manager - GNOME window decorator

 Compiz brings to life a variety of visual effects that make the Linux desktop
 easier to use, more powerful and intuitive, and more accessible for users
 with special needs.
 .
 This package contains files needed to integrate compiz with the GNOME desktop

compiz-kde: OpenGL window and compositing manager - KDE window decorator

 Compiz brings to life a variety of visual effects that make the Linux desktop
 easier to use, more powerful and intuitive, and more accessible for users
 with special needs.
 .
 This package contains a window decorator that uses KDE to provide a look and
 feel similar to that of the default KDE window manager.
 .
 NOTE: this package is empty for now. It needs some upstream maintenance to
 upgrade to a newer API. It will surely get removed soon if no enhancement
 is available.

compiz-plugins: OpenGL window and compositing manager - plugins

 Compiz brings to life a variety of visual effects that make the Linux desktop
 easier to use, more powerful and intuitive, and more accessible for users
 with special needs.
