This should not be a duplicate as it's a regression bug rather.
 Bug #681348 was fixed and the Minimize All desktop Icon was added to the launcher in Ubuntu 12.04 and redesigned in Ubuntu 12.10 (Alpha and BEta 1).

Now it disappeared. If not really a bug, then is it a new decision to take off this feature for good and do with the emabarrassing:

Besides, after this same update Mounted Drives (ext4, NTFS. partitions...) no more are sticked to the launcher and there is no way to enable this back.
