Description

Make a new setting that allow to trigger a window highlight for each group chat message. Users on smaller channels might not always use the nickname of the person they talk to, thus they might not notice the messages. Private messages are always a window highlight already, just need to extend that to group chats with a setting.

Currently being an X-chat user, this is the one thing keeping me for making the switch to Smuxi, project which I've been looking forward to for quite a while now.

I want this to be settable per channel, not for all at once, because that makes more sense, to me at least, as I don't constantly keep track of what's going on in all the channels I am, but mainly I want to be notified when there's activity in my own project's channel; here's how X-chat does it:

If you guys do something like that, not only that I'll convert myself to Smuxi, but I'll convert a lot of other people to it, on a constant basis, and will even update this step-by-step tutorial which usually helps me getting people into my IRC channel:

Cheers! :-)

This can be done now with Smuxi 0.10's hooks and desktop notifications, see the notify-all hook:

Smuxi hooks documentation can be found here: https://smuxi.im/documentation/hooks/
