root-tail is a program that allows printing of text directly to the X11 root window wherever you choose, much like running rxvt with a pixmap background but without the hassle and with more features.
No changes have been submitted for this release.
Release Notes: This version adds a justify option, which gives a smooth right-hand margin, a 'cont-color' option, which allows the continuation marker to be a different color to log text, and the ability to specify a different font for each log file.
Release Notes: geometry now expects pixels, not characters. Locale settings for multibyte characters are respected, and proportional fonts are supported now. Several options have been added. --frame now draws the frame in exactly the right place. --shade and --outline options are taken into account properly when wrapping, clearing text, etc.
Release Notes: A bugfix was made for AMD64. Support was added for a virtual root window, which should make root-tail work with KDE. Clear and redraw fixes were made.
Release Notes: Initial lines are now displayed in the correct colour, and some documentation was fixed.
