Visual Indicator of Time to Next Autosave

There is a countdown progress bar in the lower  status bar area that displays the time left before the next auto save.  The color of the bar  changes as the time counts down.  Auto save will only start when there are unsaved items in  the project.  This is a useful visual indicator when working on a project since ADE will stop taking user input for a short time while the autosave is in progress.

There is more than 50% of time left before the next autosave.  Using the default autosave setting there is between 5 minutes and 2.5 minutes to the next autosave

There is less than 50% of time left but nore than 25%,  Using the default setting there is between 2.5 minutes and 1 minute 15 seconds to the next autosave.

The next autosave is getting close.  Using the default setting there is less than 1 minute 15 seconds left.
