Log4Tailer 1.42 released

I released Log4Tailer 1.42 http://code.google.com/p/log4tailer/ on Monday. It is just a minor release affecting mostly on the final reports once you finish tailing a log. Log4Tailer allows you to tail logs in colors amongst other features. It is very useful for software testers and developers alike. I’ve found myself multiple times tailing logs in black and white using the “Tail” Linux command line, which was a pain for my eyes to try to discern information from thousands of lines. In my career I’ve seen some software testers missing “warnings” or even “error” log4j log traces, missing important information that can lead to a bug, and a long etcetera. Some of the features maybe are not going to be that important, but the core functionality, i.e. tailing with colors is really a killer app if used properly along with top notch terminal managers like Terminator hosted in launchpad https://launchpad.net/terminator. Make your live easier and enjoy ;-).
