Additional features in Notification Center
The slide-in notification center, which houses updates and information of what's happened and coming up, now includes a Do Not Disturb feature, first seen in iOS 6. It allows users to switch off all notifications for a set time to help focus on work. Users can also send iMessages to other Mac and iOS device users from the sidebar.
Notification center previews
Notifications can now be accepted and replied to, or dismissed on the fly as and when they come in. More applications are supported, including websites, which can now let you know if you won an auction item or a change was made to your online order.
Reply-to in notification toasts
You can even reply to messages and emails from the sidebar by hitting the quick-"Reply" button on notifications, or close them for later reading.
