Almost exactly two years after the first release of Xfce4 Notifyd, sorry for missing that, 0.2.0 is out.

Most of the work was done by Brian Tarricone, who allowed me to co-maintain this application due to his very limited free time.

The biggest change must be smart notification placement: when there are several notifications, they are placed in a grid-like way, instead of overlapping as they did with the previous version. This also comes with improved support for multiple monitors setups.

We also now support 'gauge' and 'icon-only' notifications as in Canonical's Notify OSD. Xfce4-volumed already uses this to provide a beautiful notification on volume change.

Finally, we are now compatible with the latest specification (0.9) which should fix a great number of issues which happened when applications expected us to be already doing so.

The little screencast I made a while ago:
