I find that the new changing update icon (star for non-security updates and red down arrow for security updates) is very useful, but I find that it is still lacking. I run a gaming server on my Ubuntu box and I'm the person who likes a up-to-date system all the time, so I usually install new updates immediately. What I find very annoying is when update manager doesn't tell me that I need to reboot before an update. I'm now stuck not installing updates in fear that I may have to reboot after them and anger the players on my server.
Can the update-manger devs please add a new icon (like the red down arrow) that signifies an update that requires a reboot?
Heres an example from my OS X box's software update, showing the icon that signifies that a reboot is required:
Thanks a lot for any help. I appreciate what you guys do.
