libnotify 0.4.0 and notification-daemon 0.3.5 have just been released. These contain a number of bug fixes and some feature enhancements. Most of the annoyances people have had are now taken care of.
Along with this release is the first release of official python bindings. notify-python 0.1.0 is up. All those people rolling their own bindings should start migrating over to this. Please report any bugs you find.
One important thing to note is that notification-daemon 0.3.5 does not ship with a working Bubble theme. This theme has been the source of numerous bugs, and until some changes can be made, it's best that we simply leave it out. It may return in an upcoming version, though, once it gets the appropriate attention.
