Yet another very useful Gnome applet got an appindicator: CPU frequency scaling applet. By using an appindicator, this tiny application will be able to run in Ubuntu 11.04 without using a Gnome panel (the Unity panel doesn’t support the regular Gnome applets).
For now it still depends on gnome-applets, but this might change in the future.
It’s nice to see that most applets are getting an appindicator and will thus work on future Ubuntu versions, but it’s a shame for all the good applets that will be lost in this transition. And it’s not just Ubuntu – Gnome Shell won’t support all these applets either.
