Growl Fork is a notification system that can display information from a variety of apps. For example, you can be notified that you have new email, or that a download completed.
bitbucket.org/pmetzger/growl is an unofficial patched version of the Growl 1.2.x sources taken from the last available public source tree. It is maintained by Perry Metzger.
The branch builds cleanly under XCode 4.1. As provided, it constructs binaries that run only under OS X 10.7 "Lion", though people running Snow Leopard are probably better off using the official 1.2.x binaries anyway.
This branch also incorporates a patch for HardwareGrowler.app, which otherwise crashes on Lion if your WiFi adapter changes state.
None of this work is official, it is not endorsed by the growl.info folks, it is not guaranteed to work at all.
(The tip of this tree is the "fork-1.2" branch, which was branched from the "maintenance-1.2" branch. The "default" branch seems to be old and unused.)
On my own machines, I am running the growl prefpane itself, HardwareGrowler and GrowlTunes, but I wouldn't call that "extensive testing", and I haven't properly tested the other Extras -- you have been warned!
