NotifyOSD

Jaunty Jackalope uses a new notification server,Notify OSD, to present notification bubbles. Notify OSD takes the place of notification-daemon.

These notification bubbles will float on top of all other windows, on the right top corner of the monitor screen. Notify OSD allows click-through; hovering over a bubble makes it transparent and you can click anything underneath. This means you won’t accidentally click on something inside the bubble, or have to close it before you work on anything underneath it.

Because Notify OSD bubbles cannot be clicked on or contain buttons that can be clicked on, Notify OSD presents any notification that would need such an action as an alert box instead of a bubble.

With Notify OSD, because the bubbles cannot be closed manually, every bubble closes by itself after a timeout. The timeout is based on the length of the text in the bubble.

Right now, to be sure of using the notification icons, you need to use the Human icon-theme. Hopefully, symlinks or updated icons for other icon thmes will soon be installed.
