LogPile 1.1

LogPile is a handy utility for viewing and printing OS X's system-level logs and application crash logs. It provides users a simple find and filter feature for basic data-mining operations of said logs. Users can also use LogPile to clear the contents of a specified application log. Currently, LogPile will not clear the contents of an OS X system log due to a permissions problem. It also will not support log files larger than 512 KBytes in size due to performance issues. Both issues are being addressed in future releases.

LogPile is designed to complement (if not, replace) MacOS X's Console utility application. It is also designed for a user with administrative privileges. For security reasons, it should not be used when logged in as 'root'.

What's new and different:

* first shareware release.
* added a progress indicator and user notification for the log reading/filtering process.
* due to problems encountered with RealBasic's bundled database engine, LogPile now makes use of a simpler (and less troublesome) binary file for storing user preferences.
* new application icon.
* more user-interface tweaks.

For registered users (or during the 15-day trial period):
* choose one of three log views (system, application or console) to be displayed at startup.
* pretty-print format.
* regular expression filtering (case-insensitive).
* hierarchical display of log items.
* white space filtering.
