Yesterday evening just before the hard freeze a nice feature was added to KWin: window decoration painted behind translucent windows. Have a look:
Currently it’s supported by Aurorae, our only translucent decoration, and I think there are no applications yet which use the feature. But as it is proposed as an addition to EWMH I’m sure there will be in future. Somewhere I read that Mozilla Firefox wants to use translucent backgrounds. So that is your solution for the X11 platform.
Well this feature illustrates that we need a blur effect 😉
