LogWatcher was released recently. LogWatcher is an Eclipse plugin like tail to watch log files. New features in 1.4 include:

  • Added ability to save filters and apply them to future watchers.
  • Added drop-down containing recently opened files when creating a new watcher.
  • Renamed "Toggle Automatic Scrolling" to "Scroll Lock" and updated the icon for consistency.
  • Added tooltip for each tab in the view containing the absolute filename of the file being watched.

Works in Eclipse 3.0.x or 3.1. Enjoy!
