Thanks for the great work. I started in a new job so I had to delay my porting efforts, but good to see that you did the work. I just had a quick look at the changes. What I would like to have is an option to use the system theme. Of course this would mean that themes like Adwaita or Greybird need to support the notification window. But it would integrate better in the overall visual experience. Nevertheless, I understand this is just a simple port, not about adding features. But maybe it would be easy to implement with the Gtk3 theming changes.
Kind regards

Subject: Xfce4-notifyd ported to gdbus and gtk3
Dear all,

This is to announce that our notification daemon has been ported to 
gdbus and gtk3. Note that there are two branches in 

gdbus-port: For the dbus work
gtk3-port: For the gtk3 port on top of gdbus-port.

The new port supports CSS theming, for that I have updated the themes 
shipped with their closes CSS equivalents.

Note that there have been efforts to port xfce4-notifyd to gtk3:

I did not continue from there, because simply the drawing of the 
notifications had to be re-written in order to get theme working.

Happy testing,
