I used @tiox helpful guide here Installing Compiz Reloaded to install beloved compiz reloaded. Is there a reason the UM dev team decides to go with 0.9 over 0.8 reloaded? I have been using reloaded for over a year now, and imo it is superior compared to 0.9 (including Emerald is a bonus) and is under active development, while 0.9 seems as though it may be soon abandoned, at least by some who maintain the project, due to Unity being dropped.
Just wondering if someone can shed some light on the reasoning behind this. If there is some specific feature added to 0.9, it could most likely be added to 0.8 if it was requested. Before posting I read through this thread as well https://github.com/compiz-reloaded/compiz/issues/24
