This allows Compiz and other compositing window managers to be built on top of a traditional X server with a small extension rather than requiring a full Xgl server. According to the Fedora Project Wiki, the project was founded in part because Xgl was written during its final stages "behind closed doors." This lack of peer-review drew criticism claiming to be the root of flaws in the software.This is also an advantage over DRI which bypasses the compositing engine even while providing hardware acceleration. An agreement was reached to share the source code between the two projects under the premise that doing so would prevent compatibility conflicts.

If you want the latest and greatest version of UFRaw you'll might have to build it yourself.

To build UFRaw yourself you can either read the detailed instructions below or just download it and get the shorter version in the README file.

to allow accelerated indirect GLX rendering capabilities to the X. This allows remote X clients to get fully hardware accelerated rendering over the GLX protocol; coincidentally, this development was required for Open GL compositing window managers to function with hardware acceleration.

There are two ways in which a windowing system can allow an Open GL implementation to talk to the graphics card.

Xgl was removed from the X Server on June 12, 2008.
