I am silently following this progress. This is what I was planning to add 
later on  (animations and effects). It is good to see this API being worked on. 
Once plasma starts using it, I would like to also for the weather forecast 

There are plenty of effects I'd like to use it for and this will likely require 
major changes to the applet layout and code.

Thanks your work on this!
