Hiding panel gets blurred only after the showing animation is finished.
It should be animated with blur effect already visible.
Steps to Reproduce:
1) activate Blur effect
2) set the panel to hide itself
3) move the mouse to the edge of the screen to show the panel
No blur effect until the panel is fully shown.
Blur effect should be visible during the whole animation.
Probably nothing we can do about it. It's quite difficult to blur the window while it is animated (tried it) and would very likely be very bad from a performance perspective.
Changing to wishlist as it's currently intended behavior

Blur behind sliding popups
Finally it is possible :-) If it causes an impact on performance
during the release candidates I'm going to revert.
M +10 -3 kwin/effects/blur/blur.cpp
M +14 -1 kwin/effects/slidingpopups/slidingpopups.cpp
If it affects the performance, maybe an option to enable this in Blur effect settings could be a nice solution?
