This version brings temporarily dismissible notifications (via the close button) amongst many more features (details below). Check out the temporary dismiss feature at http://www.deemit.co.uk.
1.2 New Features:
For each notification you can configure a delay time. The notification will not be shown until this time passes. This is configurable up to 1 hour.
You now have several image options. You can either display no image, display the visitor's avatar, or provide a URL/path to any image. The images are automatically shrunk to the same sizes.
New global option to enable / disable temporary dismissal of notifications. Enabled by default. The temporary dismissal of notifications is done via the close button and works for guests too.
For each notification you can specify a "time to hide" value. This is the time, in days, that the notification will stay closed for. If you specify 0 (default) the notification will be closed throughout the current browsing session, and will reappear the next time the browser is restarted.
Thank you everyone for your support so far. I'd like to especially thank Shelley and yodawan for their support. I'm dedicated to making this product even better, and your continued support is only making it easier!

This version fixes a number of bugs which were reported, and some others I found myself.

2) EASY STYLE:
Notification Position drop down now fully phrased.
Fixed some other missing phrases
