Bring back the sync-status please!

In eM Client v7.x there was a synchronization status on the bottem in the lefthand pane.

It said things like “Offline”, of "last synchronization at /date/ /time/ " which is very handy to know if you have a laptop with a weak wireless connection.

Yesterday, I upgraded to v8, but there is no sync-status anymore.
In settings/preferences I don’t see an option to display it.

I heard that dev decided that it was not longer necessary.
I think this is a mistake … Please bring it back!
