Subject [VOTE] Log4j 2.6.2 rc1
Date Wed, 06 Jul 2016 05:53:37 GMT
This is a vote to release Log4j 2.6.2, the next version of the Log4j 2 project.

Please download, test, and cast your votes on the log4j developers list.
[] +1, release the artifacts
[] -1, don't release because...

The vote will remain open for 72 hours (or more if required). All votes are welcome and we
encourage everyone to test the release, but only Logging PMC votes are “officially” counted.
As always, at least 3 +1 votes and more positive than negative votes are required.
Changes in this version include:
New features:
o LOG4J2-1395:  Add "direct" option to ConsoleAppender for increased performance. 
o LOG4J2-1437:  (GC) ObjectMessage and ReusableObjectMessage now avoid calling toString()
on auto-boxed primitive parameters. 
o LOG4J2-1415:  (GC) ParameterFormatter now avoids calling toString() on auto-boxed primitive
message parameters. 
o LOG4J2-1412:  Unbox utility's ringbuffer of StringBuilders is now configurable. 

Fixed Bugs:
o LOG4J2-1414:  Fixed minor issues with the 2.6.1 web site. Thanks to Ralph Goers. 
o LOG4J2-1434:  Ensure that the thread-local StringBuilders used by Layouts to format log
events to text will not
        retain excessive memory after a large message was logged. Thanks to Luke Butters.

o LOG4J2-1418:  Provide MessageFactory2 to custom Logger implementations. 
o LOG4J2-1420:  RollingRandomAccessFileManager was not properly rolling over on startup and
was getting a NullPointerException. 
o LOG4J2-1417:  Fixed issue where Unbox utility ignored the value Constants.ENABLE_THREADLOCALS
and always stored non-JDK classes in ThreadLocals. 
o LOG4J2-1422:  Fixed issue where AsyncAppenderQueueFullPolicyTest sometimes hangs. 
o LOG4J2-1445:  OnStartupTriggeringPolicyTest fails on Windows saying the file is used by
another process. Thanks to Ludovic HOCHET. 

o LOG4J2-1432:  Update Jackson from 2.7.4 to 2.7.5. 
o LOG4J2-1433:  Update Jansi from 1.11 to 1.13. 
o LOG4J2-1444:  Update Apache Commons Compress from 1.11 to 1.12.
