gPodder steals focus after updating podcasts in the background.

You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
SOFTWARE VERSION: 2.7
EXACT STEPS LEADING TO PROBLEM:
1a. Set gPodder to update podcasts periodically.
1b. Press "Check for new episodes"
2. Set gPodder in the background.
3. Switch to, or start, another application.
3. Wait until an update finishes.
gPodder will notify the user when the new podcasts are available,
A good way to do this would be with the sort of notification popups that appear
when new e-mail or SMS message arrives, saying "X new podcasts available".
gPodder steals focus from whatever program is running in the foreground to
display the list of new podcasts, interrupting whatever the user is doing.
EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED: None relevant.
I am calling it an "enhancement", since it does not impact gPodder's own
functionality, but, as far as I am concerned, this is a usability bug that
causes it to not play well with other applications on a tablet system.

Oh, and a short progress report with pictures of the current status:
Fix committed: http://gpodder.org/commit/bfd71006
There might be some more changes that better integrate this notification with
the gPodder main window, but the focus-stealing effect is gone now in the
The fix will be part of the next gPodder release.
