          Release Notes: Syslog Facility code display was added. This requires both the GUI and server modules to be replaced.

            Re: Nice tool, install need refinement...
            We put some thought into providing an install script
            but concluded that the effort that would be
            required to produce a reliable install on all Unix
            platforms was too much to justify. Very difficult to achieve on all unix platforms, without creating
            the possibility of totally messing up syslog configuration. Better we felt to put that effort into developing the software.

            There is not currently a way of changing colour
            scheme in the standalone. Most people seem to
            want to use the applet anyway. May add this
            facility later.

            Pause function: Again we've scratched our heads
            over this one for some time, it's a obvious thing
            to add to the GUI. However, the problem is
            what to do with the data that's potentially
            streaming in from syslog, you can only buffer a
            certain amount then you have to start dumping.

            Any ideas ?

            Nice tool, install need refinement...
            Useful system admin tool. Not enough SA's keep
            an eye on their logs, and this should help a lot.

            I already use syslog-ng, and so the server part was
            very simple. The applet was a bit of an
            exercise however.

            The whole thing really needs an installation script, but once in it seemed very solid and did what
            the (wordy) documentation said it would.

            Some way of pausing the scrolling would be useful,
            and I could not find a way of changing the colors
            in the application version of the client ?
