Rows below instead of unread
An option to toggle number of unread messages in Treebar to rows below current instead.
It would be very convenient if it can display the number of messages from last to your current position, live update just like unread, but it reflect when you scroll.
Usually I see how many unread messages there are but when you click on a channel the unread number clears and you have to scroll up to the unread line marker to see when the first unread messages were, then you have to remember when the most recent was as new messages comes but you're still reading the old.
Example: 10 unread > click channel > jump to line (optionally) > scroll down once: 9 "unread" > scroll up once: 10 "unread" etc.

You can press ctrl + l to get to the unread line marker, and then just read to bottom, don't think this is worth the added complexity.
Yea, but when it disappears I need to remember the time, and it's easier to see current line.
Sometimes it's several hundreds of new lines.
If it could display lines under current position (when read) it would be much better.
It also clears when switching/clicking on channel, so you need to remember how many lines it was as well (not trusting unread line marker, fully).
Is it possible to access it via API or so, if it's possible to add it myself?
This is like the only thing I miss now, thanks. :D

Like it is now when it's unread I think. When you scroll it should show lines below last visible line. A bit like this gif, but reverse: http://i.imgur.com/ZLCpNyf.gif
If you're at the bottom and scroll up it should say 1, 2, 3, 4, 5... and then back down 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0.

This is a veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeery long message
Notice how it's 3 lines, that means the scroollbar needs to scroll 3 lines to remove 1 unread message, that's what you want?

It's working as requested, thanks!
However, it doesn't seem to update if someone writes something.
I had it on (1) and one wrote but it stayed on (1).
When it's off it's working.
Also, maybe not related, when you get highlighted it doesn't color the treebar line in your color (when active, it should override selected color).

I fixed the count for next beta.
"Also, maybe not related, when you get highlighted it doesn't color the treebar line in your color (when active, it should override selected color)."
Colors for the active window does not change, it uses the selected background and selected text as expected.
