Description of problem:
New version available upstream:

Comment 1 Adel Gadllah 2009-04-01 12:54:03 EDT
Well people keep asking this but the answer is no, it wont get updated before F11 is released for two reason:

1) We are already past feature freeze
2) 0.8.x contains changes that break upgrades for people using 0.7.x/0.6.x so just building the new version is not enough. 

I have a fix for 2) but I it will need some testing to make sure it does not have any side effects. That being said compiz will be updated to 0.8.x but *after* F11 is released.

That's cool. No rush. Just filed so it doesn't slip through the cracks.

I don't really see how it's better to do a post-release update than updating it before the release? If the update is going to cause problems, it's just as bad (or possibly worse) to do it in an official update (which people expect to work flawlessly) than to do it in a new distro release (which people don't, necessarily).

if I misread that and you mean you're going to upgrade in *rawhide* after f11 comes out, no problem =)
