I merged a branch from Bilal Akhtar for update-manager the other day to add unity quicklist support (thanks Bilal!). While at it I added the updates count to the launcher too. Small change, but I really like it🙂

rather than number of updates, it might be nicer to optionally choose an icon that appears if (1) non critical updates are available (2) critical security updates are available, in a similar way to how the old update-manager applet works.
i don’t really want to know the number of updates, just whether there are security updates or bug-fixes waiting
