Apache Log4j 2.0.1 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.

For complete information on Apache Log4j 2, including instructions on how
to submit bug reports,
patches, or suggestions for improvement, see the Apache Apache Log4j 2
