Ugh, also it lacks a man page but specifically mentions configuration items explained in the man page...

Also, some of the long options are gone, so I have to rewrite my compton command string in my .xprofile

Wtf ? This is a potentially breaking change with a package that explicitly lists itself as "experimental" and we get no communication about it?

Save yourself some time when you reinstall. Have Pacman export a list of packages every time it changes with a pacman hook.

Then keep your package cache down with the auto-cleanup hook. Keeps the last version installed, in case you need a downgrade.
