Compiz Fusion and MPX and Input Redirection Patches are now out

Filed under

I figured that I should publish these before murphy’s law ensures that I either have a 1% chance of living the next day, or that the Australian Government censors me.

So, as previously said, the patches are now out today. Here is a list of what they contend of:

* All plugins that used mouse input can use input from all devices, not just the master device
* Fixes for the Input Redirection patches in the X Server
* Input Redirection support in shift, scale, freewins, shelf and ring

Inside you will find three directories, xorg, compiz and fusion.
