Geany is an editor, not a log viewer. So please understand that that use
case has lower priority to us.
You could write a plugin that auto reloads every 0.5s or so, then you
should never see the notifcation (conceptually, not considering dodgy
behavior on remote file systems).
And no editor can help against two (or more) developers shooting each
other in the foot by editing the same file.
