| Compiz Fusion is included in this release and worked really well. There's a
| menu entry which, when clicked, asks if you'd like to enable it at boot. When
| clicked, Compiz Fusion is immediately enabled and special effects are
| available. I didn't suffer any instability or performance issues when using
| this application, but it did seem to require the restart of X to disable the
| feature.
