DockbarX, a taskbar with grouping and group manipulation with some "experimental" features compared to Docbark - great for replacing a Gnome panel, is now available for Ubuntu Karmic Koala. To install it, simply run the following commands in a terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:dockbar-main
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install dockbarx 

Here is a video with DockbarX in action:

Please note that you don't need to use Compiz to be able to run DockbarX. You can just use Metacity Compositing Manager.
