Why hasn't this app been rebuit since 2018?

Transifex holds translations submitted long time ago, but they are not available in the package.

I am talking about historical journal messages, please add standard message filters like system versus application messages

When selecting 200 items view, cannot cooy to clipboard selected text, it only copies last lines

Nice update! Do you want translations?

Application is almost ready for transitions, maybe with next release.

Great idea!

Suggestion: filter by systemd unit, option to disable automatic saving or maybe 'discard log on exit'

Thanks, nice app idea!

Some saving options would be nice. "Save log to..." supporting SD-card,  and maybe "Don't save log this time".
