mtail is a small tail workalike that performs output coloring using ANSI escape sequences (although the sequences are overridable, so you could cause it to output something else, e.g., HTML font tags). It is written in python, is fairly small, and should be relatively platform-independent.

Release Notes: A fix for a threading/signal handling bug related to Python 2.1 whereby a ctrl-c would not kill an "mtail -f filename".
Release Notes: Support for tailing multiple files along with associated command line options, and a new ability to explicitly specify a config file on the command line.
Release Notes: Very little change has been made since 0.9.2, but since no more bugs have been found, the program is now labeled 1.0.0.
Release Notes: This release fixes misbehaviour that would happen if there was no default config file, or if the $HOME variable was not set.
Release Notes: A fix for a bug regarding tailing of stdin, and addition of a semi-formal license.
