Welcome to Mumbles

Mumbles is a plugin-driven, DBus based notification system written for the Gnome desktop. Similar to libnotify notifications and Growl for OSX (http://growl.info), Mumbles aims to provide a modern notification system for the GNU/Linux Desktop.

* Version 0.4.2 includes a new generic dbus plugin that allows simple additions of
mumbles alerts for dbus signals. Some of the plugins from the previous release have
been removed in favor of this method.

If you prefer to not have this happen, delete the libnotify .egg file.
