X11, Window Managers Updated: Fedora was right in the middle of announcing all this properly, so here is the updated item containing the official names. Videos included, as well as the inevitable 'Why not Xgl?'. "AIGLX is a project that aims to enable GL-accelerated effects on a standard desktop. We have a lightly modified X server (that includes a couple of extensions), an updated Mesa package that adds some new protocol support and a version of metacity with a composite manager. The end result is that you can use GL effects on your desktop with very few changes, the ability to turn it on and off at will, and you don't have to replace your X server in the process." This is part of Fedora's Rendering Project, and instructions on how to install all this are available too.

The general idea behind AIGLX is more or less the same as Xgl is implemented,though Xgl uses a general xserver to manage x-renderings.But before we see AIGLX done,we should rely on Xgl,coz I don't think open doors development will make a fast progress.The progress between open doors and closed doors development of Xgl proves this.
