In 11.04, the window in focus had a deeper drop shadow to make it look like it was closer to the user. This feature seems gone in 11.10.
Was this intentional and will this behavior return?

It's intentional. Shadow is always 8 px to fix some performance issues; see the changelog for light-themes version 0.1.8.19.
No idea if/when that will return.
