Download of the Day: Growl 2.0.7

Know what happens, always.

By Steve Dougherty from Sep 17, 2011 @ 9:48 CDT

Our Download of the Day today is Growl 2.0.7.

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 2.0.7

- updated all Growl claw icons to match new Mac icons

- made History item text copyable (select item and then Ctrl-C)

- created user-configurable setting for length of time to store

history items (HistoryDaysToStore in user.config)

- updated Websocket support to draft-ietf-hybi-thewebsocketprotocol-14

protocol version

- fixed an issue where thumbnail images for old history items were not

- fixed issues with Standard display that caused issues with high DPI settings

- fixed a bug in Growl.Connector.dll that didnt handle newlines (n)

in callback data properly.
