I would like to show a message in the new (and improved) Tridion 2013 MessageCenter.

In Tridion 2011 I used the following code: $messages.registerNotification(data);

However, this does not work in Tridion 2013.

Any ideas?

You can try this.

var msg = $messages.createMessage(Tridion.MessageCenter.Implementation.Notification, "Text", "Title", false/true, false/true);

I haven't seen any changes with regards to the $messages API between 2011 and 2013, the following calls all work fine on 2011 and 2013 for me:

$messages.registerNotification("custom notification message");
$messages.registerError("custom error message", null, null, null, true);
$messages.registerWarning("custom warning message", null, null, true);

Even using the predefined messages from the resource bundle still work for me:

$messages.registerNotification($localization.getEditorResource("PublishPopupSentToPublishQueue", "tcm:0-0-0");

So I'm expecting something else is wrong, maybe your data object is not defined?

A step by step process has been explained very nicely by Robert and Will on SDL Tridion World site.
