Gmail Notifier Plus 3.6 has been released. Thanks to all who donated, tested and submitted bugs.

Info on Gmail Notifier Plus is here Gmail Notifier Plus Readme

The latest Installer and version/release can always be found here: http://shellscape.org/#gnp

Other Downloads can always be found here: https://github.com/s...-Plus/downloads

For my own sanity, I won't be replying to support requests or error reports on the forums here. But members should feel free to help out other members. Please report issues here:https://github.com/s...ier-Plus/issues

Changes in 3.6 include:

  • Gmail Notifier Plus now works on Windows 8.
  • Significant memory and resource usage improvements.
  • Fixed errors related to sleep and hibernate.
  • Fixed custom sound and browser selection.
  • Added a tray icon menu identical to the jumplist menu.
  • Updated the Windows Installer used to build the installer.
  • Updated the installer to support upgrades without having to remove a previous version.
  • Removed the version number on the installer given that we're auto-upgrading without MSI.
  • Now showing the About window after the first start after an auto-upgrade.

For a full list of specific changes, see https://github.com/s.../commits/master

If you've been using Gmail Notifier Plus a long while and have been enjoying the updates, have had a feature request fulfilled or are a first time user and really like the app, please consider donating. There is a link to donate in the jumplist, the about dialog and the preferences dialog.

Thank you Andrew.

This is the best Gmail Notifier on Windows.

Highly recommended.

You forget to update the system requirements in Gmail Notifier webpage. Still says Windows 7 only.

Please see the original post. I won't do triage on the boards here. Please post an issue at github.

[Thread Cleaned]

Please try to keep this on topic. The op has requested that all support requests be submitted via Github, so that he doesn't have to track support requests across multiple forums. This isn't the place to argue about his reasoning for doing that.

I recently switched to Windows 8 full time and found that there's a bug in .NET 4 with regard to launching URLs. The old method we'd been using worked well on previous versions of windows, so I'm not sure whats happened on windows. I've documented the issue here, if you're curious about it: https://github.com/s...Plus/issues/110

I'll be pushing out a new build shortly to remedy this.

Edit:

Turns out that this is a bug with chrome and the latest version () on Windows 8. The workaround is to set the browser to Chrome for each of your accounts. For some reason on Windows 8, when the default system url handler launches chrome, it snips the hash in the url argument and anything after it (eg. http://mail.google.com/mail#inbox/13ae97fd0f7e1464'>http://mail.google.com/mail#inbox/13ae97fd0f7e1464 becomes http://mail.google.com/mail). I'll be submitting this to the chrome team to take a look at.

Found another interesting Windows 8 quirk. The mailto handling code that worked in previous versions of Windows doesn't work in Win8. Win8 goes a different route with different registry settings. I'll be fixing this (theres a bit of work involved) for a maintenance release.

So I'm still waiting on word from the chromium team on a nasty bug with the m23 build of chrome. m24 is supposed to fix it, but in the event it doesn't, I'll be putting in a workaround for GNP. Waiting to find out before I do anything though.

The option for the tray is already in the preferences. You'll have to use a 3rd party app to hide it from the taskbar.

Github just announced that they would be ceasing the availablibity of project downloads on their site. While I think this is an incredibly stupid move, there's not much I can do about it.

I've setup a repo at bitbucket and have placed the latest downloads there. Please see https://bitbucket.org/shellscape/gmail-notifier-plus/downloads for downloading Gmail Notifier Plus moving forward.

This a great app which I've been using for just over a month now, having found it here.

Keep up the hard work!

Great news. Chrome 24 was released today and it fixes the bug on Windows 8 with launching urls from a system command with a hash at the end. What's that mean for GNP? It means that opening emails directly from GNP works again in that system scenario.

Just a heads up for anyone still following the project - because Github is discontinuing the api which allowed GNP to check for a new version, the auto-upgrade wont work for the next version. I've since moved everything to bitbucket, but the code in the current version relies on Github. I honestly didn't think that'd be going away anytime soon. Lesson learned. I'm going to write an intermediate web layer for my own server that'll handle the upgrade notice, but that'll come in the next version, which you'll have to install manually, unfortunately.

Is this program still actively being developed? Any updates on the application?

I'm still around. Haven't really had much in the way of new feature requests that were feasible recently. Just viewed that as the app being stable enough for folks, meeting their needs.

Curious if anyone that uses a mac as well as windows would find Gmail Notifier Plus useful on their mac. I use a mac for work now and have been missing the functionality. What do folks think?

Yes, a Mac version would be VERY useful to me.

Well I've done all the legwork to investigate the possibility and I've got a project in progress. It's definitely doable, although it'll look a little different than the Windows version (naturally). I'll start a new thread when I have an alpha working.
