Thanks for this newsletter!
>We’ve packaged the KStatusNotifier extension to provide support for
indicators. This will provide support for apps which use libappindicators
which was removed from GNOME 3.26.
So these bugs - https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1713551 and
https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1713555 - are fixed?
For example on Ubuntu (new "Unity" shell) session I see both hp-systray and
psensor indicators, but they are not shown on normal GNOME Shell.
>We’ve updated the test plan for the Ubuntu Session to ensure we catch
regressions and bugs in the default session for new installs and upgrades.
