We have just released Compiz Fusion 0.7.6, based on Compiz 0.7.6 which was released just two days ago. This is a new development release, introducing a few – yet shiny – new plugins, some new features, and a bunch of ccsm and simple-ccsm changes, alongside the usual translations updates and bug fixes.

The official announcement is available in Compiz Fusion Community list archives.

Bah, it took so much time to get them, while it was just a matter of finding one or two dozens of hours to make them all :)

Well, I’m too lazy to do any screenshot now, so just check them out by yourselves :)

It’s now official, Enso, a really awesome tool that integrates smoothly into your desktop and enables you to perform several otherwise boring actions by just using your keyboard in a very simple way (check Humanized website for a better description), has just been open sourced under a BSD-like license. It’s written in Python and uses Cairo for the rendering, and the end result is really neat.
One of the great news of this is that it’s going to work on Linux (and probably even BSD’s, though it requires compositing & a compositing manager for full functionnality, which is (afaik) only available on FreeBSD) very soon :). I’ve got it working on my laptop right now, after some python-xlib/pycairo/pygtk love ; it just now needs some more testing and polish before it goes live, but it’s gonna be great :)

Enso on Linux

Long life Enso!

It’s been almost a year that this project has started, more than six months it has been having a name, it was about time to get it a neat forum theme.

So, well, here it is, check it out on (it’s not enabled-by-default right now, so you’ll have to select it using the style switcher at the bottom of the page). Please report any bug (there’s quite a high probability some icons will still be missing) in the appropriate forum, ie Forum/Wiki feedback.
Here is a couple of screenshots:

Huge thanks to Rico “RYX” Pfaus for the base layout, to Patrick “marex” Niklaus as well as the gnome-icon-theme team for the neat icons, and to onestone, Fyda and crdlb for the useful feedback, it was highly helpful. May I auto-congratulate myself for actually putting the bits together into an usable theme? *cough*

The project homepage theme is ready as well, we’re just waiting for some minor technical details to have it go live. The wiki will get a similar theme someday as well (I can’t really promiss anything right now, I’m damn busy)

Okay folks, the scheduled-unscheduled maintenance began at 10:30:36 UTC, and everything was back up 1 minute and 1 seconde later. Everything looks alright now, and IO problems are gone.

Have a nice day on Compiz Fusion web services :))

A server outage occurred this evening around 16:30 UTC after an unsuccessful kernel upgrade, which aimed at fixing IO issues.
Everything was back up online around 17:10 UTC, no data was lost and everything is OK hardware-wise.

Apologies for this unscheduled downtime. Please note that a new attempt is scheduled for tomorrow (the exact hour is still unset).
