Release notes 

To enable notify-osd's logging to ~/.cache/notify-osd.log you have to start it with the environment-variable "LOG" being defined. So the default behaviour now is to not log any incoming notifications (see LP: #904835).

If notify-osd 0.9.33 is running under unity >= 5.4.0 it'll pick up the average color from the selected desktop-wallpaper, computed and exported by unity, to tint the notification background. This is to provide more visual consistency with the Dash and HUD.
