"Sam Spilsbury, developer of Compiz, announced the release of Compiz 0.9.0 on Compiz mailing list. This is the first major release since the merger of Compiz, Compiz++, NOMAD and Compiz Fusion and also the first major release since being completely rewritten in C++. Besides moving from C to C++, this release brings a new developer API, and splits the rendering framework into plugins.

"By splitting the rendering framework into composite and opengl plugins, Compiz can be used as the known compositing window manager or as a backend for other 3D desktop programs such XRender or Clutter."
