I thought it would be nice to have the number of new unread updates next to the username on top.

I know that email information is fine. But this would be nice.

And to show only the unread updates (and not all the list of updates which is hard to find the new ones).

Any votes?

Adding the number is easy to do via a layer in a plugin. As for determining how many updates are unread, I guess the best thing would be to have a row in the usermeta table which contains a timestamp of when the updates page was last viewed. Any update generated after that time could be considered as unread.

I found something like that "added new incoming event bubble to user name" in NoahY's plugin:
