Date Fri, 22 Aug 2014 19:10:32 GMT
The Apache Log4j 2 team is pleased to announce the Log4j 2.0.2 release!

Apache log4j is a well known framework for logging application behavior.
Log4j 2 is an upgrade to
Log4j that provides significant improvements over its predecessor, Log4j
1.x, and provides
many of the improvements available in Logback while fixing some inherent
problems in Logback's

This is the third GA release which contains several bugfixes from the
previous release.

Bug fixes and enhancements

Changes in this version include:

Fixed Bugs:
o LOG4J2-773:  Site: log4j-core component pages were still using the old
o LOG4J2-760:  Documentation improvement: link to dependency tree from
log4j-core component page,
        link to log4j-core component page from FAQ page.
o LOG4J2-679:  Resolved race condition that caused log file rotation to
fail with error: "Unable to create directory ..."
o LOG4J2-726:  Prevent application from hanging when PatternLayout
configuration has opening '{' but no closing '}'.
o LOG4J2-769:  Startup takes a long time if you have empty packages
attribute. Thanks to Scott Harrington.
o LOG4J2-763:  Improved asynchronous loggers and appenders to ensure the
formatted message does not change even if
        parameters are modified by the application. (ParameterizedMessage
was already safe.)
        Improved documentation. Thanks to Stephen Connolly.
o LOG4J2-729:  Emit warning message to console if no configuration file
o LOG4J2-765:  Improve warning message when missing log4j-core in the

when using log4j-slf4j-impl.
o LOG4J2-759:  Fixed various minor site/documentation issues, mostly
versioning related.
o LOG4J2-756:  Prevent JUnit test from creating unnecessary
Log4j2Plugins.dat during build. Thanks to Scott Harrington.

o LOG4J2-775:  Update Apache Flume to from 1.5.0.
o LOG4J2-730:  Allow Log4jContextFactory subclasses to specify a custom

Apache Log4j 2.0.2 requires a minimum of Java 6 to build and run. Basic
compatibility with
Log4j 1.x is provided through the log4j-1.2-api component, however it does
not implement some of the
very implementation specific classes and methods. The package names and
Maven groupId have been changed to
org.apache.logging.log4j to avoid any conflicts with log4j 1.x.
