我第一次想要公布一下关于 KWin 获得的更改是在 aKademy 之后，但是我从未去做到它。在我几次思考诸如“一旦我完成了这个特性，我就会写出来”后，另一个有趣的事情产生了……
I first wanted to blog about KWin changes after returning from aKademy but then I never got to doing it. After that I've thought something like "once I'll complete this feature, I'll blog" a few times but then another interesting thing came up...
But finally, here's a summary of cool stuff that has happened in recent months:
其中一个最有趣的事物是混合设置自动探测。KWin 目前能尝试探测你的显卡驱动、它的版本以及是否足够的好以能默认启用混合。ATM 它会为 NVidia drivers >= 96.39 和 Intel >= 20061017 启用。如果你知道哪种设置对于其他显卡/驱动也能工作的话，那么请汇报到 kwin 邮件列表或者在这里发表评论。
One of the most interesting things is compositing settings autodetection. KWin now tries to detect your video driver and it's version and if it's good enough then compositing will be enabled by default. ATM it'll be enabled for NVidia drivers >= 96.39 and for Intel >= 20061017. If you know which settings work for another card/driver then please report it to kwin mailing list or post a comment here.
当你自行启用混合或者更改了其一些设置，你会得到一个确认对话框，如果你在 10 秒钟内没有给予回应，它会恢复上一次可以正常工作的配置（它和你更改分辨率的那个对话框很像。实际上，我们计划使用相同的对话框）。ATM 它目前有一点点不太可靠，在于当重新载入设置的时候，KWin 有时候会崩溃，但期望这个不久就能修复。
When you enable compositing yourself or change some of its settings, you'll get a confirmation dialog which will revert back to previous, hopefully working settings if you won't respond in 10 seconds (it's similar to the one you get when changing resolution. In fact there's plan to use exactly the same dialog). ATM it's a bit unreliable in that KWin sometimes crashes when reloading it's settings but hopefully it'll be fixed soon.
说及 KWin 的崩溃，我们计划使 KWin 能在这种情况下自动重启（就像 Plasma 或 KRunner）并且最终关闭混合以便即使在混合有些问题的情况下，也总能给你一个可用的窗口管理器。
Speaking of KWin crashes, we're planning to make KWin restart itself in such cases (just like Plasma or KRunner) and eventually turn off compositing so that you'd always have a usable window manager, even when compositing has some problems.
Then there's the not-so-new-anymore compositing config module where you can turn on compositing and effects. Since a few days ago it also includes the entire list of effects so there's no separate "Window effects" config module for that anymore.
其中一个最大的易用性意见 ── 效果快捷键不再列出 ── 也开始得到了解决。我在 PresentWindows （当前窗口?）配置模块中添加了快捷键。我仍然还不太确定是否所有的效果都应该有一个仅仅显示快捷键的配置模块还是仅仅在效果描述中罗列出来比较好（例如，“Shows all desktops side by side when Ctrl+F8 is pressed”……或这仅仅是“Shows all desktops side by side (Ctrl+F8)”）。我们仍然要花点时间来处理一下。
One of the biggest usability complaints - effect shortcuts aren't listed anywhere - is also starting to get solved. I added shortcuts to PresentWindows config module. I'm still not sure if all effects should have a config module just to show the shortcuts or if it would be better to just list the shortcut in effect's description (e.g. "Shows all desktops side by side when Ctrl+F8 is pressed"... or just "Shows all desktops side by side (Ctrl+F8)"). We've still got a little time to figure it out.
也有一些新的效果。Invert （反色?）和 Sharpen （锐化?）效果在 aKademy 其间加入，而 Looking Glass （放大镜查看?）── 一种更奇特的视觉放大 ── 在其之后加入。
There are a few new effects as well. Invert and Sharpen effects were added during aKademy and Looking Glass - a fancier-looking magnifier - a little after it.
旧的效果获得一些润色。PresentWindows （当前窗口?）和 BoxSwitch （盒装切换?）都显示窗口标题和图标。Shadows （阴影?）更加漂亮柔和（不幸的是有一点慢）。一些动画更加快了，这些都使 KWin 变得更加活泼了。
Old effects have received some polishing. PresentWindows and BoxSwitch both show window captions and icons. Shadows are nice and round (and unfortunately a bit slow). Some animations are faster, making KWin feel snappier.
这次我没有张贴任何视频，但如果一切顺利的话，您应该能在 beta3 的公告中见到一个。
I'm not posting any videos this time but if all goes well, you should see one in beta3's announcement.
