No, and I filed a bug about it a long time ago.

Re: live wallaper
Umm... We are working on it ;) (the support for live wallpapers)

Re: live wallaper
It's going to allow any window (even xv) to be either in front (with transparency) or in the background of the home screen. you will also receive clicks. So, you can develop now and when we release the support, you can convert your window to be a live wallpaper pretty quickly. Happy hacking!

Re: live wallaper
There is already a "live-wallpaper" application in extras-devel but I haven't tested it yet.
Is that yours?

Re: live wallaper
Got it installed, it has a sample live wallpaper, but it doesn't seem to be working properly (might be because of the changes in PR1.2).
If anyone wants to try it out here you go.
If it says something about dependencies apt-get -f install.

Not responsible for any damage that happens :)

It adds a live wallpaper as a background, it has a city + moving train sample.
It doesn't work properly on PR1.1.1 since it requires PR1.2, but when the background gets blurred the static background is shown (so it won't appear in the menu or when the status bar is opened).
Try it, it shouldn't hard the device, much :P (jk)
