I'm happy to present the first version of the call and SMS notifier, called CallNotify, and available in extras-devel (with all the usual disclaimers), as I promised.

It's a simple python app that shows a status-menu icon after a missed call or a SMS, and also displays the number of missed calls and SMS's (up to 5, above 5 it shows "+5").
The icon disappears when the missed call notification (or SMS) has been viewed or the yellow window is closed.
If both SMS and missed call has been received, the icon blinks between the two kinds without showing the number.

changes from first release are documented in the "package" link.

Features:

* Missed Call notification in the status area
* Missed SMS notification in the status area
* Number of missed calls/SMS's , if only one of them has been missed
* Sound notification in a preset interval
* Vibration notification in a preset interval
* Configuration of these settings in the Settings menu

If everything works fine you should see the icon after a missed call or a SMS.
If not, please reply in this post for further exploration.

Some pictures for the icons are attached below.

package: http://maemo.org/packages/view/callnotify/
Vote for it, if you feel it's time for it to be in the extras repository.

I owe a very big thank you to qwerty12, twaelti, lizardo, and of course - noobmonkey, as this is my first python & N900 code, and without them the road would have been a lot more mazy. Also, a thank you to joppu for providing me the polished icons for missed call and SMS.

What is the icon size? I might as well draw a email icon for you.

Nice implementation and great work. While the default behaviour of the pulsating cornor icon whenever a call or SMS is missed is fine - he number of missed call feature is a add-on I believe. Will try this.

Thanks

The icons sizes are 18x18. There's an email icon built into Hildon, I think it was takes from Gnome, looks like an envelope with a "@".

I guess you are implying about an enhancement to notify for incoming emails - may I ask if you mean the "Mail for Exchange" or the email application?

Hmm.. yeah, sending SMS to yourself is a bit problematic because, as you said, the conversation app is open, and in order to hide the notification I capture the event of closing the yellow notification window.

If it's stuck, you can get rid of it by using "killall hildon-status-menu" from x-term, but sometimes it doesn't work (I don't know why), and then you can close a missed call yellow window or in the worst case, restart.
