Does SFML support dual monitor displays? I'm not sure as to how I would create a sf::renderwindow for a dual monitor setup. Any helps/links/tips would be great, thank you :)

This is currently impossible, SFML doesn't really support multiple screens.

So are there plans to support multiple screens?

Do you know of any currently available work arounds to this issue? Any way to emulate having a secondary fullscreen window? ie. moving the second window programatically to a position where it will be displayed in the secondary screen without interfering over any of the primary screen contents....

One day, probably ;)

There's none. SFML explicitely prevents from having multiple fullscreen windows.
But what you can do is using borderless windows having the same size as the desktop, to simulate multiple fullscreen windows.
