Hello ehh I mean

Huh I always mix up that year dates, dunno why. Might be because of the ongoing cuttings on civil rights in Germany. With a data retention law monitoring my communication I definitely feel a lot safer.

Anyway. Looking back, was one of the most intense years in my life. Many changes and many new experiences. But I’m confident can catch up with that. ;-)

I had some time working on Simple-CCSM during my holidays and I actually used it.

First of all the CCSM code has gone through a review and was cleaned up a lot. The code corresponding to each page is now put into its own class. The signal system is moved to the glade file, which really saves a lot of unneeded code. Some nasty bugs were also squashed such as the wrong size of desktop preview widget.

I finished my work on the Zoom page: well, ok still looking a bit empty. ;-)

There is also new an effects page. It allows you to select your favorite switcher and enable some nice plugins like scale, wobbly and blur.

You might have noticed the “Advanced” button. It launches CCSM depending on your currently selected page in the notebook. For example, clicking on it while your are configuring animations it will launch CCSM with the animation plugin settings. Quite handy if you want to give your settings a little bit extra tweaking.

    Do you have an expected delivery date on it?

    There’s a bunch of simple managers for compiz as I understand, but not one is avialable… so even though the compiz manager is “not for end-users”, that’s all end users are using right now.

    Well, it is in git right now. ;-)

    You can grab a copy of it like this:
    git clone git://anongit.compiz-fusion.org/fusion/compizconfig/simple-ccsm

    The only thing you need is the git version of Compiz(-Fusion) and latest CCSM installed.

    A first official release will be in the next Compiz Fusion release, I guess.

    You can also apparently get it if you have a copy of Ubuntu Hardy (the one currently in alpha)


    Just a thought; does setting “Switcher” define the alt-tab function? If so, perhaps also consider adding Scale to the options since it has a similar effect (as per the thread http://forum.compiz-fusion.org/showthread.php?p=45823)

    Very nice indeed! I’m definitely looking forward to the next release of Compiz, if this is to be included! *bookmarked*

    Simple-CCSM is included in the 0.7.2 release of Compiz Fusion. :-)
