A new applet invades the dock

For my(ChanGFu) first article on the blog I would like to present an applet that I have written and which will be in the next version.
Its name: Compiz-Icon
I adapted fusion-icon and compiz-switch to make of an applet for the dock (which by the way is much nicer that the originals!)

Here are its main functions:
          • Access Compiz configuration
          • Access Emerald theme manager
          • Reload the window manager
          • Acces advanced function of Compiz (loose binding, indirect rendering)
          • Force the use of a specific window manager (perfect when Compiz or Emerald are crashing)
          • A Carrousel view when in Desklet mode just like the Weather applet


And as a bonus:
          • Fully compatible with Gnome, KDE and XFCE
          • It is possile to active the Exposition mode and the Widget layer of Compiz directly from the applet
          • It can handle several windows decorator (gtk-window-decorator, kwin, and many more)

I hope you will find this applet easy to use and that it will make your life simplet as you won't have to use fusion-icon whihc is not exactly practical.

Bye for now!
