multitail 6.5.0-1 is now available in Cygwin. This is a new upstream
release. The author of multitail doesn't provide an up-to-date changelog,
but there's a little bit of explanation on the project home page[1], and an
older changelog[2].

MultiTail lets you view one or multiple files like the original tail
program. The difference is that it creates multiple windows on your console
(with ncurses). It can also:

* Monitor wildcards: if another file matching the wildcard has a more
recent modification date, it will automatically switch to that file. That
way you can, for example, monitor a complete directory of files. 
* Merge 2 or more logfiles.
* Use colors while displaying the logfiles (through regular expressions),
for faster recognition of what is important and what not. 
* Filter lines (again with regular expressions) and has interactive menus
for editing given regular expressions and deleting and adding windows. 
* Have windows with the output of shell scripts and other software. When
viewing the output of external software, MultiTail can mimic the
functionality of tools like 'watch' and such.
