released development release 5.1.0 of MultiTail



released development release 5.1.0 of MultiTail

5.1.0: - added conversion signal number to signal name
       - MultiTail used to wake up 4 times a second, it now only wakes up if there is really something to do
       - fixed a cosmetic bug in the 'add window' menu
       - made more parameters configurable
       - error messaging is more uniform
       - added -kS which, like sed, can select parts of strings to keep. e.g. -kS "^.*(TCP[^ ]*).*$" would keep the string matched by what is between ( and )
       - fixed 2 memory leaks
       - replaced 2 strcat()s with strncat()
       - one can now explicitly wether the 'tail' used is a posix only tail (e.g. inotail) or also supports the old "-[0-9]" format
       - MultiTail can now act as a syslog-server (e.g. listening on UDP port 514 for messages). this is usefull when you want to monitor syslog capable devices (UNIX servers, Cisco switches, etc.) without the need for a syslog server
       - made some errors not fatal - e.g. let them give an error popup instead
       - unfiltered redirection would only emit the first line in certain situations
       - fixed a segfault (occuring only on AIX) at exit
       - Solaris problems fixed (malloc of 0 bytes)
       - one can now redirect to a socket (syslog/udp/514) as well
       - colors can now be suppressed in the scrollback window to improve scrollingspeed
       - improved scrolling in the scrollback menu: also scrolling in a line is now possible
