I saw your presentation last friday and I was really impressed about how those "toasts" are visible. They look a lot like IntelliJ Idea notifications and you can't ignore them !!

Good job.

I had to do a talk/demo last Friday @ the Eclipse Day in Florence and I included a small Forge2 'Hello world' in my demo. I was not particularly happy with the status bar notifications that now are used in Forge2 for several reasons but mainly because of the fact that they write to the status bar that belongs to the Project Explorer view which is not necessarily visible but also because the status bar is fairly limited. So I decided to experiment a bit with popup notifications that fade in and fade out in the corner of the window. I got this to work just in time for my demo and everybody seemed quite impressed...

I have uploaded a short video to Vimeo showing what I did: https://vimeo.com/66054038. Mind that this is just a basic implementation that needs a lot of polishing. It also seems to address https://issues.jboss.org/browse/FORGE-771. Let me know what you think about it and if I should continue in that direction.
