No you can't do a direct upgrade. You first have to go to 8.10.

It might be that compiz breaks when you do the upgrade, but that is a problem you need to fix. Compiz should work fine under 8.10 and 9.04. But during an upgrade some config files might be changed which could result in parts of the system not starting.
