Growl 2.1

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

The Growl Project has released Growl 2.1 [1], adding the capability to run scripts as actions as well as control notifications via rules using AppleScript. (For more information on writing AppleScript for notifications, see this documentation page [2].) The system-wide notification utility also addresses a problem with hanging when receiving more than 100 notes at a time, enables use of styled close buttons on WebKit displays, localizes Automator actions, and displays notes on both computers when using forwarding with Notification Center forwarding. ($3.99 new from the Mac App Store, 6.8 MB)
