      Description

      A common feature between macOS and Windows is to add an overlay image on top of the application icon.

      On Windows this was handled by the now defunct QWinTaskbarButton. On macOS we do not have an API for this, but third party solutions exist:https://github.com/sindresorhus/DockProgress

      It would be useful to have a cross platform API for this. If the system doesn't support this feature natively, the implementation can blend the two icons and replace the application icon, faking the effect.
