Several significant new features have been added in Ubuntu 7.10. The Compiz window manager, which adds rich visual effects to the Ubuntu user interface, is enabled by default on systems with compatible hardware. Ubuntu 7.10 also includes support for display hotplugging and Bulletproof X, which simplify graphics hardware configuration and make it easier to use multiple displays. Other new additions include automated printer installation, support for writing to NTFS partitions, the Tracker search and indexing system, and a more energy-efficient kernel that will reduce heat output and extend productive laptop usage time.
