Whatever happened to the future of beryl ?

One day I’m writing about all these changes I want to make in Beryl, and the next day Beryl is merging with the Compiz community. So whatever happened to my vision? Was it just talk? No, it wasn’t.

There were a few improvements made to the Beryl core. I consider the idea behind the “Beryl logger” important; It made debugging a lot easier. It will also help new developers, and track strange bugs that the development team can’t reproduce. It helps to increase the understanding of how Compiz works.

I also started cleaning the event code. Splitting it up. I spent a great deal of time experimenting to find out what really had to be inline and what didn’t. Looking back, I wouldn’t want the current state of the Beryl event code to be released as a stable release, but I think it’s the right way to go. The changes I made were not bad, but it wasn’t finished.
