ChangeLog for LogKit 1.0b5

*)  Updated unit tests to use JUnit rather than Testlet. [EP]

*)  Deprecate OutputStreamLogger and replace with

*)  Added JMS support for JMS Log messages. 

*)  Added file rotation strategies, including patches
 from Bernhard Huber and Carsten Ziegeler 

*)  Implemented a database log target. 

*)  Used synchronization to make targets more threads

*)  Fix masquerading attack security hole. 

*)  Incorporate additivity feature similar to Log4j.
 This is needed as getLogTargets() is deprecated
 for security reasons (allowed masq) and yet this
 functionality is still needed. Added unit tests
 to verify it behaves as expected. 

*)  Made LogEvent serializable. The format may change
 slightly before release. 

*)  Passed Hierarchy object as ErrorHandler. Hierarchy
 delegates to another ErrorHandler which allows
 ErrorHandler to be pluggable without resetting
 all ErrorHandlers each time an ErrorHandler is changed. 

*)  Incorporated delegation of Error Handling to ErrorHandler.
 Logging components receive an ErrorHandler by implementing
 ErrorAware. Added AbstractTarget that provided
 basic functionality of open/close and error handling
 almost always needed by LogTargets. Refactored
 all existing targets to work with this method. 

*)  Made ContextMap serializable. After deserializing
 it defaults to readonly. This assumes that Context
 only contains serializable elements. 

*)  Update build process to the proposed standard. [BL]

*)  Update build process to notify the user of missing
 jars, and perform many other checks
