Xgl and compiz packages are available
universe for Dapper. "As noted before, these are highly experimental
packages. If it crashes, this is unsurprising. Please do feel free to file
bugs, but right now they'll probably just be forwarded upstream. Please do
not be surprised if it doesn't work. If you're running binary drivers,
things get even more complicated and there's a reasonable chance that
things will fail to work in strange and unexpected ways.
Ben Collins has issued a call for testing
of the current Dapper kernel. "The main point of this testing (for
me at least) is to catch regressions from breezy. It is far more important
for us to make sure we don't lose users because of a non-upgrade issue,
than to fix a long standing superficial quirk."
Meanwhile, the feature freeze for Dapper
has been announced. "The feature freeze for Dapper begins this
Thursday, February 23rd. This means that feature goal development be
substantially complete. Features which are behind schedule may be granted
exceptions (for priority goals with a clear roadmap to completion) or
deferred to the next release."
