The package will be necessary for Nvidia users until compton merges garnetius' patches upstream. When I made this package, compton hadn't had any commits since 2015. There have been some commits to compton upstream as recent as September since then, but they are just code clean up and typo corrections.


For Intel/AMD users, this fork will function mostly the same aside from a few patches for shadows.


So if you use Intel/AMD for graphics and aren't really interested in shadows, then just waiting for compton to take care of things upstream should be fine.

I suspect that Nvidia may break compatibility again though, since they are wont to do that. So this package may still be necessary even after the current patches are merged, if only temporarily.

Can anyone comment on whether this fork is still necessary? Have the fixes here been merged into upstream compton yet?
