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.c...3ae97fd0f7e1464 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.

Hi and thanks for your work. It's possible put the icon (and nº of unread mails) in system tray? and put the application working in background and invisible in the taskbar?

Thanks again.

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.
