Acrylic Windows Fix

Use case or problem

In a recent patch note, it was revealed that translucency for windows was removed, after digging this feature was removed because of electron artifacts.

Proposed solution

I have developed DLLs in the past both for c++ projects and nodejs electron based projects to fix this electron issue, I would like to share the source code with the developers and help them integrate acrylic back into obsidian (personally one of my main reasons for using obsidian). It’s a very small bit of code, only one file in size, and only requires a nodejs package like node-ffi (which I’ve used with electron in the past). I would like to get this patched back into obsidian sooner then later as I’ve used it in past projects without any issues and tested versions of windows works on both win10 & win11.
