We've had a lot of reports over the last few weeks that G+ Notifier has stopped working :(

Unfortunately, it doesn't currently work on Windows 8 (due to using an old version of Awesomium).

Until I've been able to upgrade Awesomium, I can't get it to work on Windows 8, and therefore can't investigate the other issues.

I'm hoping to do this as soon as possible, but will be tied up a lot in the coming weeks due to moving house. If anyone has time and would like to have a go at this themselves, we do accept pull requests :-)

Is anybody having issues with G+ Notifier lately? I've had a couple of reports of issues on 9th December, but I'm unable to reproduce any issues; seems to work ok.

If you're having issues, can you please post below, and include the OS you're using, the version of G+ Notifier, and whether you'd be happy to run a custom build with additional logging to help us track down the issue.

G+ Notifier 1.10 Release!

Changes:

* Now plays Windows "MailBeep" sound when new notifications are found
* Size of Notifications Window now persists if the user resizes it
* Added ability to select how frequently G+Notifier checks for updates
* Added higher res notification icon to avoid graphics issue when Windows is set to high-DPI mode

Additionally, a number of issues we had previously with the notifications window (such as trying to mention people, or view circles) have been fixed by a change Google made with the latest update! :-)

Help make G+ Notifier use less resources!

It's been some time since Google+ launched, but there is still no support in the API for use to retrieve the number of unread notifications. This is why G+ Notifier has to use a hidden Awesomium window to function, which means memory and CPU usage are much higher than they should be.

If you would like to see Google add support for this, so we can make G+ Notifier much more efficient, please "star" this issue in their issue tracker:

If you happen to know someone at Google, why not give them a prod too. Google+ would be used more if people had decent access to notification counts in their Windows notification areas in a more secure and efficient way!

Thanks! :-)

My company is looking for another C#/ASPNET dev to join my team (Liverpool, UK) working on tourism systems. Know anyone that may be interested?

We use FogBugz + Kiln (Mercurial) for source control, code reviews, issue/trask tracking (and a little Trello!). New machines are usually i5/i7s, SSD, 8+GB RAM, 2x screens.

If you know anyone that might be interested, please pass this on and/or ask them to get in touch and I can provide more info.

*G+ Notifier 1.9 is now available to download!*
http://gplusnotifier.com

This version addresses an issue with the JSON parsing as a result of a small change Google made to the Google+ app.

If you're set G+ Notifier to automatically update, you should receive the new version of the next 24 hours, however you can upgrade manually if you prefer. If you installed the portable/zip version, just close down G+ Notifier and replace the folder with the contents of the new version. If you used the Windows installer, you can just click the "Install Now" button on the website and the installer will upgrade.

Any issues, please let us know via the support site!

It looks like a recent change to the Google+ web app has broken G+ Notifier, so it will just always show 0 notifications.

Unfortunately until the API has notifications, this is always possible with their updates (though this is the first time it's actually happened).

I'll try and get an update out as soon as I can.

G+ Notifier is a Windows utility that sits in the notification area and alerts you to notifications in the Google+ social network.

Latest Changes (1.8) 18/08/2011
* New settings dialog (opens on first launch)
* Moved auto-update option to settings dialog
* Added option to launch Google+ in default browser when clicking the notification icon, instead of opening the notifications window
* Changed installer to launch G+ Notifier after install
* Made notifications window appear on the left side of your screen if that's where your taskbar is
