Package: kwin-style-crystal
Version: 2.2.1-2+b1
Severity: important
Tags: upstream

Apparently, this KWin style is no longer compatible with the new KDE version
that just landed on Testing: after installing my usual round of updates
(including one for KWin), Crystal style is gone - it doesn't load, you can't
select it anymore from the Window Decoration settings...

There is this bug report on upstream:

The reason of breakage seems to be that KDE removed the KDecoration API used by
Crystal, and porting to the new API is a non-trivial task. Unfortunately this
means part of my KDE eyecandy is gone for good, if we can't find someone
willing to assume the challenge.
