It's been said multiple times that AIGLX is in 9xxx in Sept.
8774 was released so all the bleeding edge distros can finally check in XOrg 7.1 (debian sid/unstable was hit w/ an oops partial upload late last week)-:

NVIDIA has full support for AIGLX, and has had full support for it since long before the DRI/X.org had support for it.

What you mean to say is that there's still no support for GLX_texture_from_pixmap, which OpenGL compositing managers require (in addition to AIGLX) in order to operate efficiently.

AIGLX is just one component of several needed for Compiz and friends to work. NVIDIA supports that component, along with every other necessary piece of the puzzle, except for GLX_tfp.

Default Re: 9 series driver due in Sept

will they work with X.org 7.2 due in October?

i guess i am asking if X.org plans to break the API/ABI again for 7.2 as they did for the jump from 7.0 > 7.1

X.org 7.2 is supposed to have better support for XGL/AIGLX.
