Yes, that has been there since KDE 3.1 if not much earlier. It's a great
functionality. They revamped the UI for it in KDE 3.4, if not earlier. 

The last time I was using GNOME, additional software was needed to gain the
same functionality. My wallpapers change every 2 minutes now and it makes
working much more pleasant.
