It's the testing event I've been waiting for! A new version unity has arrived, stock full of compiz fixes. The team has removed metacity completely, and also migrated to gsettings from gconf. The result is removal of unity2d, and the enablement of llvmpipe on unity for those running without hardware acceleration.
Now, of course this work, in particular the settings migration, needs to be tested. This is where all of you come in! The package tracker now contains an entry for unity, complete with testcases for this migration. For those who helped test last cycle, you will also notice all of the checkbox testcases have been ported over as well! Many thanks to the unity developers for there help in migrating these tests. For this call for testing, the 'Unity GSetting Migration' testcases have been marked as mandatory, meaning that testcase is the primary focus. However, if you are able, executing the other testcases also helps the unity team ensure there haven't been any regressions.
Please note the 'Unity GSetting Migration' has steps for you to complete BEFORE you install from the ppa. Please read it first before diving in. Here's a link to the testing on the tracker. And if you are new, check out our wiki for a guide on using the qatracker to help test.
Now, as an added bonus, the unity developers have also tagged several multi-monitor bugs and have asked users to go through the list and confirm any bugs that they can. Read the bug report, and if you have a multi-monitor unity setup, see if it's still affecting you. Leave a comment on the bug with your result. The unity team wants to make sure the bugs are able to be triaged and get proper attention if they are still valid.

Thank you in advance for your help, and happy testing everyone!
