Benefit to Sugar

  • Progress notifications
  • Background software update notifications
  • Coolness


It is a small change that does not break compatibility.

It needs Features/Notification_Replacement so your progress bar can move!

Contingency Plan

People are sad :(


Using the notification hints:

  • x-sugar-progress-bar must be True
  • x-sugar-progress-pulse True for a pulsing bar (see the start of the video)
  • x-sugar-progress-fraction 0.0 to 1.0 for the progress bar progress (e.g.: 0.5 is 50% filled)
