Bug Description

When a program requests to wiggle its icons on the launcher, if the launcher is visible, it works fine and the icon shakes properly. But when it is not visible (auto-hide option is enabled), desired behavior would be that its icon should slide inside while it is shaking and then go off the screen after a short while.

This behavior already hes been applied in 14.10 and older versions, but in 15.04 launcher does not show urgent animation when it is hide that it could be bug.

Why this bug annoys me?
I usually would use IM apps and in such apps, Pidgin for instance, when a user becomes on-line or off-line, its icon on the launcher starts to shaking and in this way informs me.

  * Fix a regression with urgent icons not showing up if launcher is
    hidden. (LP: #1450991)
  * Make sure new icons are added to the model before calling
    SortAndUpdate. (LP: #1458950)
  * This likely could fix
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/unity/+bug/1451613. At
    least the backtraces posted there suggest this. But I think that
    those backtraces are just leftovers of old crashes-on-unloading.

  * New rebuild forced.

  [ Chris Townsend ]
  * Allow mouse clicks that are not in the visible area of the Quicklist
    to pass through down to the Launcher icon. Fixes a failing AP test.
    (LP: #1456245)

  [ Luke Yelavich ]
  * Implement filter results controls accessibility (LP: #1457071)

  [ Marco Trevisan (Treviño) ]
  * ApplicationManager: add missing features, keep a copy of views
  * DecorationsForceQuitDialog: remove deprecated override style
    functions, use CSS
  * GnomeSessionManager: Request ScreenSaver (de)activation on VT
    changes (LP: #1405349)
  * OverlayWindowButtons: trigger a queuedraw also when a child requires
    a redraw (LP: #1461618)
  * PanelMenuView: connect to target window / application title changes
    (LP: #1418449)
