- Macromedia Flash don't work with composite (this have no relation to nvidia of course)
Nothing changed from Xorg 6.8 release.
So, X7.0 release is just a vaporware. They switched from Imake to Autoconf building system, introduced a "new rendering technology" XAA (side note: it is supported only on some exotic hardware) and have done nothing else.
We still have various problems with Composite. We still don't have working Xgl and so on. Great work!
No you still have issues - some people do not.
