Geany 1.25 has changed the notification to a bar at the
top of the editor, it is only visible when you have the file visible
and it is not modal so it can be ignored if you want to. But if you
have the log file visible, I would have thought you would want to know
there is more information available.
To be honest it's annoying before, I just endure it.
In any case, there is always the button to re-read the contents of the
file. And frequent notifications annoying once again.
The current modification time system is to alert
users to things like
someone else modifying a file you have open, or when checking out a
version from VCS changes the file. That way you are more likely to
make edits to the right version of the file.
Imagine that-be if each database when showing query result notified
that visible data are not relevant.
Well, in many applications they do, but thats irrelevant.
First it would be very costly in terms of resources.
Second on the tables with frequents inserts notifications will be blinks.
In general, I understand that I am not convincing.
I'm afraid so, it is very unlikely that we will remove checking for a
file change, only improve it.
We might accept a well written PR that allowed a user to turn
modification checking off per-file, so you can set your log to not
Similarly a PR to calculate and use signatures to check for a changed
file at save *if the timestamp says its changed* might be acceptable
if it has an option to turn it off.
But the editing files is not a "chat" and
not needed online here.
