A new Compiz release 0.7.0 is now available

According to information from upstream compiz 0.7 will be ready for the timeframe of Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. compiz will introduce an object system and abstract the output, allowing output plugins based on XRender or OpenGL.

The XRender-plugin will be used when OpenGL is not available or the OpenGL-support on the machine running compiz is missing some feature or extension.

To ensure the smooth operation of compiz as the default window-manager the integration work into the desktop has to be emphasized.
