Till Growl 2 comes out there is also Bark.
http://barkplug.in

Bark actually displays the app's icons in notification center unlike mountain growl or hiss.

Of course it puts some weird bundle stuff on your machine to gain this ability (Growl 2 is supposed to do it a nicer way that Apple approves of.)
If you want to uninstall Bark the ability is actually inside of Growl on Bark's style configuration section.

Better, imo and many others, open source alternative to Hiss.

Try them both. I really just wanted to share an alternative that as of the post was not listed here on macupdate., but is now… Anyways, Growl using a "special" .growlstyle appealed more to me than a 3rd party app like Hiss. I don't use notification center so I just wanted to share an alternative as all I had heard was Hiss, Hiss, Hiss. From the dev's page:

"Other solutions like Hiss are okay, but a actually a weird hack with a lot of down sides. So while waiting for Growl 2 (which hopefully will support the Notification Center) why not use the current Growl with a plugin that does the necessary. All as a 1st class citizen in Growl."

Try them both then you can post and tell us all which is better. NC imo is crap, so… their both not good and I don't really use either one, still use Growl, hence my preference for a solution that works with growl, not an app that can’t even run alongside it. Please tell me which you prefer?

tried them both. Have to admit that Mountain Growl is way better, thanks to have pointed it out.

Does what it says on the tin: route Growl alerts to the 10.8 Notification Manager. Until most app devs get around to fully supporting Notifications, it's a good way to leverage all the Growl-enabled apps out there, without the need for Growl itself.

There are some limitations: all Growl alerts show up under one App group in Notifications. This isn't a bug; Notifications groups the alerts by app, and it can't tell which app sent the alert to Hiss. Not much the dev can do about that, it's an Apple architectural limitation.

Hiss is a brilliant piece of software that allow Growl to coexist with Mac Notification Center.

Only one improvement to perfec Hiss is to be ale to autoroute bth Hiss and Growl at log in.

A the present time, Hiss must be stated before Grrowl is started.

Apar from this, Hiss is fine

There is no need for Growl to run. Hiss reroutes the notification from a Growl enabled application and sends it to Notification Manager.
