Do I need to deactivate SIP?

You only need to desactivate for installing advanced feature (more info here). They you can reactivate it. This new version of Deskovery has been made from the ground up to accommodate the new security constraints when running (after installation)

Where are the wobbly windows?

With SIP activated there is no more the ability to use wobbly windows and transparency effects. If you still want to use them, you can use Deskovery 2.3.3 but you will need to disable SIP.

Deskovery 2: A real windowshade feature

This is fist post of a serie, showing what is coming in Deskovery 2. WindowShading is like jailbreak, each new OS version can break it. It was the case with Mountain Lion. We had to implement a “fake” window shading using placeholders instead of a real windowshaded window. This was also the case for all competitors of Dekovery. After, a long research, we have found a way to bring it back. It mean that you can directly interact with a minimized window (close it, maximize it, …). Real WindowShade Soon in Deskovery.
