Tux Machines (TM)-specific
Current kwin_composite branch can finally do some simple effects. This screenshot shows the animation for a newly appearing KWrite window. This time no manual hacking in of the effect, this is what is in SVN. The window is smaller because ScaleInEffect makes the new window appear as scaling up to its size and it is transparent because FadeInEffect makes the new window appear as fading in. And just in case anybody wonders why the animation is not moving in the picture, then that's of course because it is just a picture. I admit it is somewhat dull that way, but I haven't figured out how to do better (well, I didn't trying that hard, anyway). There is the source if you want to see it for real.
Technically, right now kwin_composite should about match Kompmgr's possibilities, of course with the added bonus of being able to develop much further (as soon as somebody does that development, indeed). Which means that COMPOSITE_TODO has now entries listing all the Kompmgr effects.
