[AddonsLab] Navigation Badge 1.0.0
The add-on shows the number of unread posts on What's New tab. This is the migration of XenForo 1.x add-on "Unread Post Count" by @Chris D and includes all its features. The option to configure the cache timeout is in "Threads, discussions and conversations" options group, as before.

As XenForo 2.x has introduced a new Navigation engine, we have created another add-on - "[AddonsLab] Navigation Badge", that allows any third-parties and admins to add different badges to any navigation item. The add-on is required for this add-on to work and can be downloaded for free.

Any other navigation tab can show the number of unread posts by configuring it to use a callback for the badge with class name "AL\UnreadPostCount\Callback" and method "getUnreadPostCount". This is the default setup for "What's New" button after add-on installation.

The badge is added using default XenForo 2.x layout/styling, but it can be easily styled for each case using CSS only by using "nav{navigationItemIdHere}" class. For example:
.customBadgeContainer.navwhatsNew:after {
top: -10px;
will make the badge in What's New tab to be on the top-right corner.

The product is free and does not include any licensing code or any callbacks.

Feel free to suggest further enhancements for the add-on or report any issues you have and they will be addressed asap.

Please consider posting a review if you are using the add-on and let us and other users know how it works for you.

Thank you!
