You achieve that result by setting the "Never hide" option in System settings > Desktop > Dock.

    This is interesting. I am assuming there have been several tweaks to that switchboard plugin of late as mine does look slightly different now. Are you fully up to date @mr.ck? I feel the answer is still valid though as 'focused window is maximised' is probably more in line with what the OP asked for.
