X11, Window Managers A new acceleration architecture is being ported from kdrive by some QT developers, which will make composition managers like xcompmgr really fast and able to do some of the "display tricks" MacOS X has been doing for awhile.

Great news!

This is really great news! Thank you very much, Zack. I especially like the the fact that this also works with older hardware. I have a ATI Radeon 9600 which should handle OpenGL just fine, but unfortunately the propritary ATI drivers just suck and I rather prefer to have something that also works with the open source drivers that do not offer hardware accelerated OpenGL.
