provide a DBus service for the Unity launcher API:

and implement display the count, progress, ugrency properties.
This way Unity applications relying on these APIs continue to work with Gnome3 as expected.

We believe it's an important feature for our desktop and would like to integrate the changes in artful so we are requesting a FFe and an UIFe for the github proposed changes

This won't be reflected in the desktop guide until 18.04, so no problem from a docs/translation POV.

In the screenshot in comment #1, Does the color of the emblem have to be red? It does not match very well with the rest of the color theme.

Looks like it's not yet finished upstream review... is it likely to miss the beta? I'm worried about continuing to introduce new features late on. What do you think?

The emblem is implemented in pure CSS you can easily change the shape and
the colour.

I would land the changes in artful now/on sunday|monday (before beta), I've been using them without issues for some days and the code got some first reviews. I agree it's late but the changes make quite an usability difference and it would be a shame to have 17.10 without that feature

I'm not super happy with this landing at this point, but on balance it's probably worth it. Please upload now if you can.

Question - should we see the unread message indicator, as is, right now in dock v0.6?

Currently I'm logged in to Telegram on my 17.10 laptop with Telegram running. I installed the .deb for v0.6 dock:

||/ Name Version Architecture Description
+++-==============-============-============-=================================
ii gnome-shell-ex 0.6 all Ubuntu Dock for GNOME Shell

I have a desktop system, Ubuntu 16.04 with Unity, off to the side also running Telegram.

The laptop (Ubuntu 17.10) does not display the unread count indicator on the Telegram icon within the dock.
The desktop (Ubuntu 16.04) however does.
Telegram is fully up to date on both systems, and both systems are fully up to date.

I need to test more applications but I kept hearing that Telegram should be supported, however I'm not seeing any indication it is on 17.17 + v0.6 of the Ubuntu Dock. Can anybody else confirm their findings?
