Hi, I've improved unity laucher integration.
- Compose New Message

I've attached a patch to sylpheed.desktop and screenshot how it works.

Hi, Here is the patch which shows unread count.
This is JUST A PROOF OF CONCEPT VERSION, so it isn't suitable for practical use yet.
I know some more fixes are required :-P
Anyway, I've found that following API must be used.
Dear Sylpheed developer(s),
on the mailing list:
i read that Sylpheed 3.4.0 final is scheduled for 03/31/2014.
Any chance you could implement the Ubuntu Unity launcher integration until then?
I am asking because the next Ubuntu LTS release (14.04) currently is scheduled for 04/17/2014:
meaning, soon after Sylpheed 3.4.0 final release.
Which means, if you don't implement it until then, users would probably have to wait for this feature at least six more months (until Ubuntu 14.10).
On the other hand, I am not even sure Sylpheed 3.4.0 final can make it into Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, as Ubuntu 14.04 LTS already reached the Debian Import Freeze and both Debian and Ubuntu do not even have Sylpheed 3.4.0beta8 in their repositories yet:
On the other hand though, all of this would not be an issue if you would provide official Sylpheed updates through the Ubuntu Software Center:
which would get the latest Sylpheed versions in the hand of users without them having to wait and to upgrade to the next Ubuntu release ;).
