dunst is a notification system, inheriting code and thus looking like dmenu, written in C.
Currently, there's no official release, only a tree on GitHub, but it works and is pretty stable so far.
Tested the ebuild on ~amd64/~x86, works for me. The ebuild could support 'savedconfing' and USE=+/-xinerama, which should be easy, but I didn't have time to read up on 'savedconfig', yet.
Since we've already got dmenu/dwm and other WMs with a 'bar', I think this would be a nice addition to portage.
BTW, not the author, just a fan.
missing in portage

not perfect, missing xinerama and savedconfig
Thanks for getting the ball rolling. Does this http://gentoo-overlays.zugaina.org/flora/portage/x11-misc/dunst/ have anything newer?
Can be closed. Dunst is in portage (though not the 9999-version).
