NotifyOSX 2

Use with Growl


Daniel K. Bergey is the original creator of the display style aptly named NotifyOSX for Growl (download the original version here). I have been a fan of both Growl and NotifyOSX for quite a while. Growl is basically a framework (a way for applications to easily tell other applications to do something, for Growl; display something). In the same way as Daniel I use it to display various notifications; including incoming Mail, finished transfers, what track iTunes is playing, when I receive chat messages from friends and so on. It is very convenient.

Version history

NotifyOSX version 1.3.1, 2007-12-01

  • The possibly corrupted disk image in Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard provided by Jim Mitchell of Thank you!

NotifyOSX version 1.3.1, 2007-11-26

  • Solves a JavaScript problem that caused linebreaked content from some applications in Mac OS X 10.5 to add a ”> ” to the display style.

NotifyOSX version 1.3, 2007-11-26

  • Fix for long unbreaked words such as URL:s, torrents and file names that do not have any natural word breaks.
  • Mac OS X 10.5 has a solution for an odd shadow behavior which occurred when the content of a notification was updated that changed the height of the notification but did not update the shadow accordingly.

NotifyOSX 2 version 1.2.2, 2007-10-12

This release includes:

  • A bug fix for when the opacity setting was not working across the whole display style.
  • A slightly smaller file size for a better memory footprint.

NotifyOSX version 1.2.1, 2007-10-08

NotifyOSX 2 now comes in a disk image and with a separate Read Me-file. Users of version 1.2 need not update. No changes to the notification have been made.

NotifyOSX version 1.2, 2007-09-11

This version adresses the broken compatibility with Growl 1.1. The problem was the bundled version of NotifyOSX (version 1.0). Two display styles can not have identical names and since the bundled version is not in the standard plugin folder it does not get replaced when installing the newer version, thus rendering both display styles unusable. Problem was fixed by renaming this branch to NotifyOSX 2

NotifyOSX version 1.1, 2006-11-21

This is not the original NotifyOSX, this copy has been edited by Niklas Brunberg in order to fix a few bugs in the original release:

  • Edited the left bar images to use significant less disk space and RAM
  • Edited the left bar to be able to scale infinitively
  • Fixed the title and text width to be more unified (better padding)
  • Added ability for the title and text to break long file names or texts.
