Focus Pip Added to Unity Quicklists

Here’s an update to file under ‘little things that matter': Unity quicklists in 13.04 now denote the state of a focused window.

What does that mean in more intelligible terms?

Say you have two Firefox windows open, and you want to switch to the one you didn’t look at last using the Quicklist.

Previously the quicklist would list open windows but not indicate which one was ‘in focus’.

But recent updates to Unity in Raring fixes this by adding a ‘dot’ next to the window you’re currently looking at.

Minor change? Certainly. Useful? Likely.
