Growl 1.3 Released With Major Changes

Growl, the notification system for Mac OS X, was recently updated to version 1.3. While “dot updates” to apps usually don’t signal a major change, that’s not the case with the latest version of Growl. In a post on the Growl blog, the team described the major changes that have taken place:

Growl is no longer free: The app has a full-time development team, and all of the money made from the sale of the app on the Mac App Store goes toward supporting the continuing development. Growl is available for US$1.99, and the team reported that without moving to a paid app model, development would have ceased. It’s still, however, an open source project.

Growl need not be installed for you to get notifications: When developers update their apps to take advantage of Growl 1.3, Growl no longer be installed for users to get notifications. As the team puts it, “Think of these updated applications as Growl, and the Growl application as Growl Pro. The Growl 1.3 SDK includes a framework which can display a notification, even if Growl is not available.”
