Issue 23106 proposes to add the ability for applications to know when notifications have been dismissed in the status bar. Pretty simple, but such a feature is absolutely crutial in the development of applications like StatusBar+ and Laucher7. Such a feature would allow for StatusBar+ to include in-bar notifications like the stock status bar, or Launcher7 to display the notification unread message count next to any application be it Gmail, Facebook, or what have you without special permissions, root access, or polling a server. In general this feature will make Android a better platform for developers and users alike, which is why we are asking everyone to take a moment and star this issue. Together we can change Android for the better!
