    Yep, they have been there since 1.1...you just have to be in the right spot at the right time to notice it when they occur.

    They display for any new alert or conversation.

    The little star indicates the "latest" alerts - they are really helpful in going back to your most recent alerts when you get sidetracked or lost in a long thread - as well as differentiating from previous/earlier alerts that you've probably already looked at. (y)

    They have versions of this on vBulletin. The first version I used was a free one that only appeared after a page refresh or if you went to another page. Then a guy called gibigbig created one that controlled where the alert box shows. Daviate created one called vBSocial that resembled Facebooks, Dragonbyte came out with a paid version that lets you change the colors and stuff. Thankfully all this stuff is free and comes default for Xenforo.
