Very useful plugin! BTW, is there an option to change background color for the highlighted text so it is displayed correctly in Darcula scheme? ;)

Please, could it be made to work with RubyMine too? I've tried to modify just the plugin.yml file adding a "depends" tag, the way it is said in http://confluence.jetbrains.com/display/IDEADEV/Plugin+Compatibility+with+IntelliJ+Platform+Products, and it now loads in RubyMine. However, it crashes later because it uses clases not available in RubyMine, like com.intellij.openapi.actionSystem.DataKeys

If we could just clear the buffer that would make this tool soooo much better!

Can you add support for ssh like in RemoteTail, that would make this the ideal tail tool for me. If you can put up the sources somewhere, I can take a shot at it too.

Great tool. I also see performance problems with large files (6.0) and I would really love to be able to clear the buffer.

regex highlighting rules.

But I found a couple issues:
1. Doesn't work quite well with large file (very slow and CPU bound).
2. Throw a lot of exceptions in 6.0.

Hope you get to it soon.
