Hello Bilal and Mikkel! Indeed, we are ready to merge lp:~gary-lasker/software-center/launcher-integration-lp761851 and plan to release this at the same time that 5.2.0 goes out. We'll do our best to stay coordinated on it. Mikkel and didrocks are both aware that we want to release these as close to the same time as possible, so we should be in good shape. We'll be paying attention on Thursday! :)
I want to say thanks again Bilal for your great work on this!! I can't wait to see this feature finally in action in the world (and I look forward to the last pieces of functionality that you are working on). It's gonna be very cool.
