Cairo-Dock2 is coming !
Here is a non exhaustive list of the news :

Cairo-Dock is now a full OpenGL dock ! (the cairo backend is still available for old graphic cards or ATI)
New plug-ins provide many animations & visual effects : Animated icons, icon effects, illusion, drop indicator, motion blur, dialog rendering
New applets : keyboard indicator, mail, quick browser, Toons, weblets.
The config panel has been widely rewritten.
Great improvment of the Taskbar ergonomics.
Desklets can be rotated in 3D.
Dialogs have many different window decorators.
A lot of new themes, old ones have been reviewed.
The Theme Manager can now download new themes on the server for many applets : clock, dustbin, Cairo-Penguin, Toons, etc
and can build theme packages to easily exchange themes between users.
XGamma : added the ability to setup a custom luminosity on startup.
Shortcuts : added display of disk space.
Clock : smooth seconds' needle movment.
Slider : 3D transitions betweens slides and Exif data.
Rhythmbox : 3D themes.
Gmenu : added a quick launcher in an "ALT+F2" fashion
Direct scroll on many applets : XGamma, Slider, AlsaMixer, etc, and also on applications' icons.
And a lot of bugs fixes everywhere !

Does "(the cairo backend is still available for old graphic cards or ATI)" mean, I cannot use the GL-Backend on my Mobility Radeon 9700? It runs compiz fine...

No, sorry... It's not a Cairo-Dock bug but ATI drivers... We hope that it can be possible in the future (ATI and Intel say that it can be soon possible !)
You can test Cairo-Dock with cairo backend (cairo-dock -c), see our wiki First Steps

Wow. cool post. I’d like to write like this too – taking time and real hard work to make a great article… but I put things off too much and never seem to get started. Thanks though. common rail
