  What would it take to include a configuration

I think it will be used by just a few people, and will clutter the
right, then let's either have the 'dismiss all' button, or make the
backend remove the alarms when it notifies them.
I would be in favour of some option to dismiss all of these alarms, or
better, prevent all these alarms being displayed when they've already
been dismissed (albeit on another computer).

This is a very good discussion.  I have one thought...

What if all alarms were displayed in a single window?

i.e. let's say I have 100 past-due appointments.  Popping up 100
windows is of course a disaster.

in 1.5 this does not happen, since the alarms are not displayed on
windows, but as icons on the panel.

  But, what if Evo popped up a single
window that listed all 100 alarms in a list box (or tree view or
some other way of listing lots of data)?  A single click on
the OK button and they're all gone.  No crashing window managers.  :)

this is similar to what we are doing for 1.5. I am about to finish the
'Dismiss All' menu item for the panel icons, so you'll be able to
dismiss all of them. The window for each individual alarm is only open
when you left-click on the icon, so no crashing window managers :-)

I'd be very grateful if people could base their opinions on the 1.5
alarm notification, not on the 1.4 and previous versions problems, which
we all know and have suffered. So please, get current CVS and let me
know of problems/enhancements/etc
