The purpose of this thread is to discuss the roadmap (eg. new features and changes) for the next version of Gmail Notifier Plus. Please feel free to make feature suggestions and request changes to the application.

Please do not post here about errors. Use the GitHub Issues Tracker instead; https://github.com/s...ier-Plus/issues

Anything that's been striked out (like this) means it's been completed.

R & D - Stuff that I'd like to do, but have to look into it first. UPDATE - All of these items, while completely doable, are going to take a LONG time to implement. Because of that, I'm going to slate this for a later release, if it ever gets done. All of these require IMAP and that means a more complicated setup for users, a lot of code and a lot of testing. Just not going to happen for the 2.4 version.
  • Mark as Read (doable)
  • Mark as Spam (doable)
  • Delete (doable)
  • Archive (not doable)
  • Mark all as Read (doable)

New Features
  • Toast notifications.
  • Flash taskbar on new email.
  • Mail count in system tray. (for small icon users)

New Options
  • Disable Previews (Default: false) (decided against doing this)
  • Flash taskbar on new email (Default: false)
  • Show mail count in system tray. (Default: false)
  • Accounts: Select browser to launch, per account. (Default: System Default)
  • Show Toast notifications. (Default: false)
  • Accounts: Use an account for mailto: links

Misc Changes
  • Inbox button always visible on thumbnail previews
  • Clicking on thumbnail previews will launch open browser to the visible message.
  • Added 'Help Wiki' jumplist link

let me just say, you are THE man for doing this. i have been trying out so many mail notifier programs and i still liked this one the best but it just didn't have enough options or features. i really wanted system tray and pop up alerts. it says you added all these features. i loaded your version up but it's the same as the old one? have you done them already or still working on it?

Looks like you missed the first line of my post:

The current version is 2.2.something.something. The next version will be 2.3. Feel free to discuss those features/changes and suggest any of your own.

LOL yeah, that's what developers of free software love to hear. Just gives me all kinds of incentive to rush it out for you! :whistle:

Hi Andrew,

God bless you for supporting this app ;)
What about to remove this behavior?

Unless someone else can enlighten me, I know of no way for an application to maintain a spot on the taskbar without appearing in the alt-tab window list.
