I wonder why Google didn't give us this update that the hacking community has had for so long. Thoughts?

Because they didn't even give us this update... who knows, maybe it will be in the actual release, if this isn't it.

Edit:

It seems that there IS this feature built in, just depens on the app, etc... at least some are reporting colored track ball alerts for differing apps.

Re: Froyo and no Trackball update?
I can confirm the above edit. I get different colors but no way of changing to a preference.

On my GF stock nexus phone i updated to froyo and for text it came up as magenta color.
I tried using handcent sms to change the color but i dont think it is configured yet to control that.

I just did a little test with AK notepad and set a notification to glow green and sure enough, it works. I guess the individual apps have to give you the option to change the color.

People are getting mixed results with the trackball. I can get AK Notepad to work, but nothing else does. On an AT&T N1

That's what it is. I use SMS Popup for my text notification and the app itself gives me the option to change the trackball color. Everything else is still white.
