Download of the Day: Growl 2.0.4

Know what happens, always

| Software News | Posted: Aug 13, 2010 11:24 am

Our Download of the Day today is Growl 2.0.4.

 

Growl lets you know when things happen. Files finished downloading, friends came online, new email has arrived - Growl can let you know when any event occurs with a subtle notification. The rest of the time, Growl stays out of your way.

 

Along with letting you know when things happen, Growl also gives you full control over how you are notified and what action (if any) you want to take in response to the notification. You can choose to be alerted with a visual indicator or an audible alert, both, or neither. You can choose the type of display that is shown, whether the display remains on the screen, the importance of the notification, and even if the notification should be forwarded to another computer. You can have notifications that trigger an email, run a script, launch a program, or are read out loud.

The latest version includes the following changes:

 

Changes in Version 2.0.4

 

- fixed a bug in GrowlConnector that could cause a hang if the connection was lost in the middle of receiving a response
- deprecated instance method GrowlConnector.IsGrowlRunning(); replaced with static GrowlConnector.IsGrowlRunningLocally()
- updated GrowlConnector Register and Notify methods to accept a user-defined 'state' object that will get passed back in the response events (used to associate responses with requests)
- updated Growl.Connector.Response class to include RequestData property (that data was formerly inaccessible from the response)
- improvements to subscriptions to reduce number of renewal requests and updates of the UI
- added /cmd:show switch to Growl.exe for launching Growl with the settings window open
- added Detector.ShowSettingsWindow() method to launch Growl settings window from another application
- added /ai switch to growlnotify to specify the application's icon when registering
- added basis for WebSocket support as well as growlwebsocket.js client library. The only supported endpoint is: ws://localhost:23053/gntp
- improved installation process for language packs on Vista/Win7 and other machines with UAC; now correctly automatically prompts to elevate privileges if required
- removed ability to add new Twitter forwarding destinations (due to no workable oAuth/open source solution)
- fixed a bug that caused redraw artifacts when quickly scrolling the 'Add Computer' list of forwarding options
- fixed some rendering bugs in the History Details view
- added Italian language translation
