Feature questions/request

I stopped using Mate back when it still had the 1px resizable borders, it made the user experience too frustrating too often. When you fixed that in 19.10 I noticed immediately, and I've been on Mate since.

There are two additional features that I miss in Mate and that I consider necessary in order to qualify as a fully mature desktop:

  1. Window/dialog animations (open, close, maximize, minimize). This one is big.
  2. Consistently sized previews on hover on open programs in the panel, and a close button in the preview

Are there any plans to add those features to Mate, especially #1?

As for #1, try Compiz.
