1) WPF based windows apps

Why WCF? Why not use REST, possibly Web API? (You can do REST in WCF, but it requires a bit of setup/configuration.)

I would think that the "Observer Pattern" would fit nicely here.  Also, passing a Text file/XML file to the clients would be a good choice for notification.
