make the switcher show a thumbnail of minimised windows, as metacity does

Bug Description

Binary package hint: compiz

I have noticed that metacity's new switcher (when the composite agent is activated) can even show thumbnails of minimised windows in its switcher. It's not a real-time thumbnail, but it's still better than just having a huge app icon. It looks greyed out too, which is a great visual hint to indicate that it's a minimised window.

Would there be a way for Compiz to do the same?

Hi there
you report this issue some time ago and hasn't been any activity since, i was wondering if this is still an issue for you with the latest upgrades in Hardy Heron.

Thanks in advance

Actually yes, the latest version still lacks thumbnailing of minimised window. Thanks for the interest :)
