The latest Follow code can now be found be SVN. The project has moved from CVS to SVN for flexibility that will be needed for upcoming changes to the source code to allow for greater development efficiency.
It's been 3 years since a release, so we figured it was about time to get some new features built in. Of the bug fixes applied and features added, the highlights are:
- Search within a file
- Pause a followed file
- Restart a followed file
Development is picking up, so if you have any features you'd like to see, please add them to the feature requests on SF.
This release includes the oft-requested autoscroll feature.
The Follow project has enabled its BugTracker. You may now submit your bug reports & enhancement requests for Follow at http://sourceforge.net/bugs/?group_id=11206
Follow is a simple Java application which allows a user to monitor several log files concurrently. The name and behavior of this application are inspired by the "f" (follow) flag of the UNIX command "tail". This release (version 1.3.1) represents Follow's SourceForge debut.
