compiz(-kde) will need updating for KDE 4.1
Last modified: 2008-07-24 13:33:20 EDT
Description of problem:
This is mainly a reminder so we don't forget: We are planning to push KDE 4.1
to Fedora 9 in about 3 months. As compiz-kde uses libplasma, it will need
updating together with KDE 4.1. Upstream has already modified compiz for the
new libplasma API in KDE 4.1, see:
I have already updated compiz in devel (F10) with this patch (see
compiz-0.7.2-kde41-libplasma.patch). If you want, I can also take care of F9
once KDE 4.1 comes.
IMPORTANT: This patch will BREAK support for KDE 4.0, so please do NOT apply
it right now. And as this is now in upstream git, future compiz releases will
probably have it, so if you're planning to upgrade compiz before we upgrade
KDE, you will have to explicitly revert this patch.
And don't worry, the libplasma API/ABI will be frozen soon (upstream's plan is
to do minor adjustments for 4.2, not major ones like from 4.0 to 4.1, and to
freeze it after 4.2), so this mess should come to an end soon.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
compiz-0.7.2-3.fc9, KDE 4.1
I'm also CCing Adel who has been de-facto comaintaining compiz lately. ;-)
I don't see a reason why we can't add this patch when kde 4.1 is out, as its
just a backport from upstream. As for f10 there should be a release out by then
which will include the patch.
compiz-0.7.6-3.fc9.1 built, will be included in the update.
