There is a number of ways to access those information and there are
plans to make it even easier.

Just giving a little overview here:
 * access.log:
   all clients, updated at disconnect of each client
 * on-[dis]connect scripts/event subsystem:
   for sources only, push,
   triggered at the time of the event
 * URL auth:
   all clients, push, real time, can alter the client
 * stats.xml:
   all clients, pull, real time
   statistic data including aggregated information on all
   clients, push, real time

Which is the best option depends a bit on your usecase. Also different
solutions require different levels of access to the server (filesystem
access, administrative access, admin and/or source credentials, ...).

All of the above is available in both 2.4 and 2.5. 2.5. improved a lot
things but the basics are very compatible.

Generally I would like to refer to the docs here: 

Also over at Löwenfelsen we're having a presentation on URL auth on the
4th of March. If anyone is interested please ping me off-list.
