Ruby-growl 4.0 Released

ruby-growl version 4.0 has been released!

A pure-ruby growl notifier for UDP and GNTP growl protocols. ruby-growl
allows you to perform Growl notifications from machines without growl
installed (for example, non-OSX machines).

What is growl? Growl is a really cool “global notification system
originally
for Mac OS X”.

You can receive Growl notifications on various platforms and send them
from
any machine that runs Ruby.

OS X: http://growl.info
Windows: http://www.growlforwindows.com/gfw/
Linux: http://github.com/mattn/growl-for-linux

ruby-growl also contains a command-line notification tool named ‘growl’.
It
is almost completely option-compatible with growlnotify. (All except
for -p
is supported, use --priority instead.)

=== Changes:

  • API changes:

    • Growl is now a wrapper for Growl::UDP (1.2 and older) and
      Growl::GNTP (1.3
      and newer). The main difference is that notifications need to be
      registered with Growl#add_notification instead of via
      Growl#initialize.
    • Ruby 1.9.2 or newer is required to use ruby-growl
  • Major enhancements

    • Added GNTP protocol support for registration and notification
      including
      application and notification icons and callbacks.
    • Moved UDP protocol support to Growl::UDP
    • Growl automatically determines if the growl server supports GNTP or
      UDP
      and uses the best protocol.
