This appears to be fixed as of 1.3rc2.

@GeorgeEdison Yes, I wasn't looking for anything fancier than that. However, I don't think it needs to flash, just changing the background colour might be better.

I don't think so. That is another website and it just appears to show aggregate information for all my linked accounts. I was just looking for a persistent indicator to remind me to go back to the Stack Exchange website because I'm not always at my computer. Kind of like the new email indicator.

Of course, if there's no way for your app to determine if there are new replies, then maybe you could just show changes for the last 24 hours?

I don't know how you would do that. That is, I'm not sure a new replies notification would work without cooperation from the StackExchange feature that provides that information. Presumably that would be via the API, but as I said I don't know much about the API. All I know is that when I visit a StackExchange site there is a small icon next to my username that tells me if I have new replies (and how many). The thing is I have to individually visit each StackExchange site that I've joined to see it. I saw your app, and was hopeful it could also appear in my Gnome panel.

I don't know much about the API, so maybe it isn't supported. StackExchange has some way of determining when to change the envelope icon when there are new replies so I thought maybe that was available to applications using the API.
