In VS 2013 you guys added notifications:

Many extensions would benefit from a uniform notification system.

I work on Code Review extension, and I'd love my users to know when new comments have been made, when folks sign off on the review and what not.

This seems like such a central feature - it deserves extensibility.

We’re looking at this, but our primary concern is protecting the notifications area from abuse. Clearly there are legitimate uses for this capability, but we hear loud and clear from other developers that they do not want this feature opened up broadly, for fear that the signal-to-noise ratio is wrong. Further comments on reasonable restrictions are greatly appreciated as we consider this.

Best wishes, Tim Sneath | Visual Studio Team
