The 2 (possibly one and the same) issues that are bugging me atm both
relate to drop shadow. I was even thinking of creating tickets for them
tonight then i saw this email.
Firstly can the drop shadow be removed when windows are maximised?
Currently i have my shelves set to appear below windows because
otherwise they come up over fullscreen windows, however, when i maximize
a window (Non Fullscreen) the drop shadow appears over the shelf and
that looks ugly.
Secondly Disable drop shadow if it is in a stack as part of tiling
partly for the same reason mentioned above and partly because it looks
bad against the non focused windows that its tilled with.
I could ask again for Left and Right Window borders mostly because
overlapping browser windows that are predominately white look really
bad, but i know that's not going to happen :-P
Bonus Points if you get some sort of imagemagik icon and theme color
changing option working like mentioned in that trac ticket i can't be
bothered looking up. I don't strongly need this option though as i just
build my own slightly different theme anyway. It would be cool though.
