,----[ Quote ]
| While X Input 2 isn't ready yet, Peter Hutterer has back-ported his device
| properties protocol into the X Input 1.5 extension. Last night on the X.Org
| mailing list he proposed his patches for the X Server that will remove the
| Configure/Query property functionality and replace it with his device
| properties protocol. This work comes in the form of three patches for the X
| Server plus patches that will be required for the evdev and inputproto
| support.

,----[ Quote ]
| In addition to the being able to break the window into hexagonal and
| rectangular shapes, using my triangular tessellation code found in the
| extra-animations plugin, Compiz can now break up the window into triangular
| shapes.
| The effect is used currently in the explode and leaf spread effects. I also
| added hexagonal tesselation to the leafspread effect.

| Although I do not think that people would be wearing funny glasses all day
| long to work on their PC, possibilities this plugin presents are quite
| exciting for gamers and everyone wanting to show off the ‘real’ 3D desktop.
