I usually have more than a hundred new items in my various feeds. Liferea showed the count on the tray icon just fine until maybe a year or two ago, but current versions stop counting after 99, which makes the count useless for me. It always says the same thing: 99+.
This patch makes Liferea handle much higher counts on the tray icon. For up to 999 items, it displays the number exactly. For 1000-99999, it displays one or two digits followed by "K", meaning kilo or thousands (using the standard metric suffix). Above that, it displays "HK+", meaning hecto-kilo or hundreds of thousands.
This approach makes the tray icon's new item count useful at much higher values than it is today, without consuming any more horizontal space than the current "99+" text.
