Spotify no longer supports Growl notifications?

Growl (2.1.3) suddenly stopped showing Spotify notifications (Macbook Air running 10.10.2, Spotify version When I emailed Growl support, they told me that Spotify had "completely removed Growl support." Can anyone confirm, and if so, do you know why?

It's working well enough, but I much prefer Growl's notification system, so hopefully they'll eventually bring back support for that.

Much thanks for this! Running Yosemite on a work Mac and the apps in the app store require the latest software to work, so I was stuck. The link above worked great though. 🙂
