Bug Description

When new updates are available and the Power-Cog menu entry changes from "Software Is Up To Date" to "Updates Available..." two things should happen:

1.) the Power-Cog icon in the panel should change color to blue
2.) the "Updates Available..." entry in the power-cog menu should change color to blue

Per discussion on the <email address hidden> thread, Mark wrote on 28 February 2012:
"Yes, this would be consistent with our design guidelines for the indicators.

 * the indicator can turn colour [green - affirmative, blue - informational, red - warning]
 * the relevant section in the indicator (in this case, software update line in the menu) goes the same colour to create a thread from the indicator to the menu action

Mockups and bugs welcome.

Not sure, but probably the design spec needs changes because of this.

2.) the "Inbox" entry within the Messaging Menu should change color to blue

Nick, thanks for these ideas but please don't load multiple issues into a single ticket.

Closing the indicator-messages component as "Invalid" because it' s unrelated to this ticket's summary. Please submit the indicator-messages suggestion in another ticket. Thanks!

This is obsolete since Ubuntu 12.10 with the merger of the user menu and device menu.
