Introduction

Here is an example layer file to implement custom menu items for your RCP Application's tray icon popup menu. The following is an example of what is shown in the larger thumbnail for this plugin.
<folder name="System Tray">

    <attr name="position" intvalue="100"/>
  </file>
  <file name="org-myorg-feedreader-actions-RemoveFolderAction.instance" url="org-myorg-feedreader-actions-RemoveFolderAction.instance">
    <attr name="position" intvalue="200"/>
  </file>
  <file name="org-myorg-feedreader-resources-separator.instance">

  </file>

Hi Scott...

I have just tried out your pluging... it is really fabulous...
But I seriously need the multilingual version of it...
is there any possibility of adding a new bundle to the plugin...

2 sugestions

First: put an option to really close when clic on close button.
second: put an option to minimize to tray when clik on minimize.

keep improving!

Good

Successfully tested on Mandriva Linux with Gnome desktop environment.
But the icon is kinda ugly: http://img231.imageshack.us/img231/3323/screenshotkp1.png
