Maybe it could work like the dock in mac os x, if you have a lot of icons the icon size is smaller, and there is a Zoom animation if you hover it. Otherwise there is no animation.

That´s the single feature that would make me switch over from docky.

I've made a primitive magnifying effect on plank dock, but I'm not sure if you guys would support it, if you haven't written it yourself yet, I'd be more than happy to help making a better os x like magnifying effect. The demo is in the video:

@fatihbakir: The video looks interesting. Please provide a proper patch for the current trunk otherwise it is hard to figure out what you actually did. So please base your work on r1061 and avoid committing generated files.

@fatihbakir: Of course providing a clean rebased git branch would help too. But since bzr is used for our trunk it would be nice to have a branch here on launchpad :-)

@ricotz Not planned this task is almost completed development exist on github? Can he enter for version 0.10? It's a important feature.

Thanks !!

It works perfectly, and I have come to prove even a notebook N160 processor. You're a genius. When this improvement is published in the stable fork it will be impressive
