Google has updated its Gmail Notifier for Mac OS X app.
The new version (1.8.2) is a universal binary. It is also smarter about looking for updates and downloading them.
An additional tweak that restricts notifications to a particular Gmail label works fine with the new version.
A clever plugin for Gmail Notifier, Gmail+Growl , has also been updated to match the new release of the parent app.
Gmail+Growl works with Gmail Notifier to send notifications to Growl .
The new version (1.6.5) gets a new icon to match. It also offers a new feature. According to the release notes ,
holding shift and clicking notifications will dismiss them instead of opening their link (if you have them set to open normally; otherwise it *will* actually open them, since it inverts that setting). Handy for dismissing sticky notifications or just opening select messages.
