Hey everyone.

The Desktop Notifications spec 0.4 is out, and available at:

It's a slightly different URL, so update your bookmarks, if you have
any set.

The major changes include:

 * Added <img/> support in the body (with size requirements and such).
 * Made restrictions on markup very clear.
 * Removed the High urgency, leaving just Low, Normal, and Critical.
 * Added new notification types.
 * Added an expires field to the D-BUS message.
 * Moved from an expiration timestamp to a timeout.

I think those are the main changes.

And no, sound and XML were not included in this release ;)
