Compiz + Beryl Merge Confirmed

Regarding the previous post on the possibility of a Compiz and Beryl merge: it is happening.

After several weeks of discussion the leaders of Compiz and Beryl have agreed that the two communities shall reunite. This decision is supported by both David and Quinn and represents the majority decision of the administrators and developers in each community.

My thoughts came to life from the previous post: The Compiz name will be kept.

There will be two main sections: compiz-core and compiz-extra. The Core section will be the basic Compiz package and plugins. It will be considered most stable out of the two. The Extra section will be where you can have all of the fun with your effects. Many Beryl plugins will be in this section, and it will essentially be Beryl. It will be named Compiz Community for the time being.

For now, the websites will remain separate until the two projects are completely merged.

Keep your feed readers tuned to FOSSwire for more updates on the merge!
