I think it is called "status window", as can be seen in the little options 
dialog of Sidekick.

SideKick did not change much in the update to jedit-5.3.0 and 
jedit_build-20151023 in Isabelle/d40f906bb13f.

Posting on isabelle-dev instead of isabelle-users means there are less 
people who might potentially join into a movement to brush up some jEdit 

The real work on it needs to happen on 
http://sourceforge.net/projects/jedit though, with its various trackers 
and mailing lists.  The process is relatively slow, but it moves on 
nonetheless.  I have myself added a fair amount of changes to jEdit and 
its plugins already.
