Newsreader/Salvo UI Integration in the workbench/Work done during July 7 to July 13
I continued the implementation of News Digest View.
Last week I implemented a very basic view for the digest view. In this week I improved the functionality of it.
In the ealier implementation the TreeViewer showed duplicate items for some articles. Those duplicates were removed.
Viewing the articles in a single thread is improved.
Fixed several other bugs in the earlier implementation.
Modified digest view label provider with getNiceDate() function.
I did some research to find how to display a notification in eclipse.
According to my research, for displaying a popup desktop notification, still there is no proper API in the platform UI.
But there is an excellent notification mechanism in the mylyn ,. There were discussions on moving that mylyns' popup notification API to platform UI . But seems like it is not completed yet.
So to reuse the mylyn notification mechanism we have to add org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.ui bundle as a dependency. In the discussion  Steffen Pingel (from mylyn) has encouraged other projects to reuse their notification API in that way.
I tested a simple plugin to display notifications using org.eclipse.mylyn.commons.ui bundle.
