I think they are trying to replace it with "Indicator Applet" which works for some programs (like Transmission)
Actually, when I first upgraded, I did have both in the top panel (must have been a hold over from karmic). For some weird reason they just disappeared. I have them back now! (Hooray!) I don't know how many times I have skipped over that thinking it didn't apply to what I needed... That's what I get for thinking!
The Indicator applet as far as I can tell only gives you an icon for evolution and volume control... can you add to it?
Thank you, just what I needed!
