BangTidy2: A Beautifully Animated Growl Notification Theme

Growl has no plans of going away as we covered back in February, and it's nice to see people still creating excellent notification styles.

Last Sunday, Daryl Ginn (@darylbro) published an update to his Growl notification theme called BangTidy. The new version 2.0 features a stunning 3D splash effect, while remaining simple, clear, and minimalist.  Your notifications are going to pop out as smooth as ever. I haven't used Growl (the universal notification service for the OS X) for a while now, but with this new notification style, I will definitely consider using it again.

BangTidy2 is available for free on Daryl's Dribbble stream, where he also attached a short demo video.
