Upcoming meeting notification

First, Cron now shows a popup with a big “Join conferencing” button just before the start of a meeting. It’s nifty. You can fine-tune it in settings. It appears in the top-right corner and can even punch through “Do not Disturb” mode. In case you’re running late, it has a one-click “Email participants”.

Second, the standard event reminder notifications are now more actionable, too. In addition to 1-click joining conferencing and emailing participants, you can snooze notifications for various durations.

The entire Cron notification subsystem is improved: clicking a notification automatically shows the event’s details; declined meetings no longer trigger notifications; and Cron picks a better time to ask for notifications permissions (if you don’t get notifications from Cron yet, allow “Alerts” in macOS System Preferences > Notifications > Cron).
