          I tested this a little more and found that if the soft link is changed then the job is not triggered, but if the file pointed to by the soft link changes the job is triggered.

          We would like it to be triggered in both cases.

          Please could you tell me what do you mean about updating the soft link (executing a command, ...)?

          If the object being monitored is a soft link:
          somefile -> file1
          then if the link is modified with:
          rm -f somefile ; ln -s file2 somefile
          then FSTrigger does not trigger a build unless file2 is newer than file1. In our case, it should trigger the job whenever the link is modified.

          I found a solution: if the slink has changed, the build is triggered.
          Please could you upgrade to FStrigger 0.22?
          Thanks
