WAYLAND --
Samsung developers have been working on implementing client-side post processing effects for Wayland. This is to achieve similar effects like "wobbly windows" as were common to the Linux desktop going back many years with AIGLX / Compiz / Beryl.

Samsung's Derek Foreman and Mike Blumenkrantz have been working on a "Wayland Wobbly Windows" protocol that exposes when clients are being moved and when they're being dragged in order to implement different graphical effects.


There is a Samsung OSG blog post about the client-side post-processing effects in Wayland. So far they're making some nice progress on Enlightenment's Wayland compositor for their experiments.
