Desktop RSS reader application ‘Liferea‘ has found itself some Docky love with a new helper showing you the number of unread posts on the dock icon itself.

This is the latest “helper” in Dockys’ repertoire. Other integration “helpers” currently include IM client Pidgin, spy-on-your-own-pie applications Zeitgeist and Gnome-Journal, media-players Banshee and Rhythmbox, note-taking application Tomboy, as well as a terminal option on bookmarked folders shown in the dock.

Dropbox Docklet
