What I want to see in Logcat plugin for Eclipse

The new logcat plugin is cool, now has regex and more options to filter. But it lacks of:

  • highlight searched text
  • syntax coloring for XML and others
  • selection of log format (brief, full, etc.) and ring buffer (main, radio, events)
I developed a small logcat plugin with those both features. Warning, this logcat plugin is ugly (I'm not a UI designer), it's just a small example.

You can download it here: https://skydrive.live.com/redir.aspx?cid=511e6cc6d535b08d&resid=511E6CC6D535B08D!123

A few screenshots

syntax highlight in XML


I will continue using the original logcat plugin, is really great, but still has many things to improve. Congratulations to all the developers, they did a great job.
