X11, Window Managers Two more articles on Beryl. The first one is on drag and drop in Beryl: "What does Beryl add to the drag and drop picture? Well, for a start, if you've got a lot of windows open, it's easier to find the target if you can see all the windows at once. Also, if you want to drop a file/text on an application on another desktop, you can do this much more easily. This is a cool little feature that allows you to drag and drop files between applications on the same desktop, or different desktops." The second one is a performance tweak for Beryl.

Remember that the drag and drop infrastructure was actually added by David R in compiz. This was subsequently ported from compiz to Beryl with little or no acknowledgement [1]

Proper input redirection support is also being worked on by David R and will appear in Compiz soon. No doubt the feature will also make it to Beryl at which point OSNEWS will run a story on it.
