A similar question that occured to me: I see that fedora rpms will (probably)
be available as well; does xfwm4 come with the compositing support enabled,
or do we need to compile from source for that?
If the latter, it would be good to clarify that somewhere; probably on the
download page, rather than the announcement, but ...
I hesititate to bring this up so soon before release, but it will probably
solve some mysteries for people...
[I've installed 220.127.116.11-1, which _seems_ not to have it enabled... or else
