A library that sends desktop notifications to a notification daemon, as
defined in the Desktop Notifications spec. These notifications can be
used to inform the user about an event or display some form of
information without getting in the user's way.
This package contains the shared library. To actually display the
notifications, you need to install the package notification-daemon.
