Apparently there was a new message/functionality introduced today. I gather it displays answers and comments on one's favored questions and displays this the same way as "You've new answers". Is this feature documented somewhere?

A documented new feature here? haha. –  Gnoupi Jun 1 '10 at 8:29
Where did you hear about this? –  devinb Jun 1 '10 at 8:29
I was presented the same notification today but to me it looked like a favored question was deleted and hence removed from my favlist. –  Filburt Jun 1 '10 at 8:35
I tagged this as faq-proposed because I bet it will soon be a common question. Or maybe the answer to this should be merged to some notification based faq? –  Earlz Jun 1 '10 at 8:59
On an unrelated sidenote, for some reason I get the feeling that it was a bad idea to bookmark more than 500 questions. –  mafu Jun 1 '10 at 13:52
