Expose for Gala

Asked by Bosse on 2012-07-03

i would love to see a kind of Mac OS Xish Expose feature to switch between windows. I'm aware of Alt+Tab, however its not that intuative and clear like Expose.

Is it planed to implement such a feature in Gala?

Have a look at this branch if you're interested lp:~gala-dev/gala/gala-expo ;)
But it will most probably be a target for Luna+1, so don't expect to see anything soon.

Thanks for your fast reply.

So the gala-expose is target for Luna+1, but Gala itself is targeted for Luna? Is the gala-expo that buggy?

There are some problems which would have to be solved, but instead of working on additional features we want to get a stable version out.

I really think an expose feature is crucial for Luna. Currently there really isn't a quick way to view all open applications. Alt+Tab isn't convenient and not the best way to display windows either.
