It looks like I'm being notified of comments to questions/answers I commented on, without the replies actually containing "@Matt" or similar.

I couldn't find any recent Q&As on this behavior. Is it new? (I like it.)

    For the future, consider checking out our maintained changelog when something weird comes up. It's fairly well maintained and will contain a lot of these larger changes. No harm in having the question, I say, but having the answer available is a useful tool.

It was implemented as per here. If you are the only other commenter on a post, comments from the post author will trigger a notification to you even if they forget to use the @ syntax.

I actually got two notifications this morning. It's a very nice feature.

  • Dangit. I searched for "comment notification" and that doesn't show up on the first page by relevance or newest.
