Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements

Description:

A KWin effect to show new windows like the Plasma "pulse" effect.

It's difficult to capture the effect on screen. Instead, please add a Plasma widget to desktop, then you'll see how the effect looks like when it appears.

INSTALL:
Extract the package first. In the extracted directory, run:
./configure
Then please follow instructions on screen.

If you are updating from an older version of this effect, also run:
kwin --replace&
to restart KWin.

Looks like the KDE version is too low. The source code is based on KDE 4.4.2, so probably won't work on KDE 4.3. Sorry.

wow this looks cool. :)

i made an archlinux package: http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=36247

Some suggestions and questions:

Would it be possible to make the effect more configurable, e.g. less animation radius, slower and so on.

And a feature to disable this effect for some windowclasses would be nice, cause yakuake with this effect is not fun. ;)

Nice ideas. Surely it's possible. Need to learn how to do config UI, but shouldn't be too hard.

Works good, and looks good. Great work!
It's just too distracting for me to use :p

Me too, LOL.

That said, I do think Plasma has many nice tricks that should be ported to the rest of KDE. E.g., that "toolbox" which pops from the side of widgets, I'd like to make a similar window decoration.
