Hardy Heron (8.04 Ubuntu).....Compiz?

I am running Kubuntu Gusty Gibbon(7.10) with Compiz Fusion, and I was wondering whether if when i upgrade to Hardy Heron(8.04) all my compiz settings and effects will still be available and working the same as it is now. I remember having to go through the setup process and it was hectic. I just don't want to have to go through that once again. So I want to make sure that is I upgrade to Hardy Heron(the final release) if it will effect my Compiz Settings and effects.

Compiz is just about the only thing that didn't break when I updated to the beta
So you should be fine.

Seriously though, you might want to wait another month or two after the final release.
