Subject [ANNOUNCEMENT] Log4j 2.14.1 released
Date Sat, 13 Mar 2021 02:32:16 GMT
The Apache Log4j 2 team is pleased to announce the Log4j 2.14.1 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 other modern features such as support for Markers, lambda expressions for lazy logging,
property substitution using Lookups, multiple patterns on a PatternLayout and asynchronous
Loggers. Another notable Log4j 2 feature is the ability to be "garbage-free" (avoid allocating
temporary objects) while logging. In addition, Log4j 2 will not lose events while reconfiguring.

The artifacts may be downloaded from https://logging.apache.org/log4j/2.x/download.html.

This release contains a number of bug fixes and minor enhancements which are listed below.

Due to a break in compatibility in the SLF4J binding, Log4j now ships with two versions of
the SLF4J to Log4j adapters. log4j-slf4j-impl should be used with SLF4J 1.7.x and earlier
and log4j-slf4j18-impl should be used with SLF4J 1.8.x and later. SLF4J-2.0.0 alpha releases
are not fully supported. See https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-2975.

The Log4j 2.14.1 API, as well as many core components, maintains binary compatibility with
previous releases.

GA Release 2.14.1

Changes in this version include:

New Features
	• LOG4J2-2962: Enrich "map" resolver by unifying its backend with "mdc" resolver.
	• LOG4J2-2999: Replace JsonTemplateLayout resolver configurations table in docs with sections.
	• LOG4J2-2993: Support stack trace truncation in JsonTemplateLayout.

Fixed Bugs
	• LOG4J2-3033: Add log method with no parameters - i.e. it has an empty message.
	• LOG4J2-2947: Document that LogBuilder default methods do nothing.
	• LOG4J2-2948: Replace HashSet with IdentityHashMap in ParameterFormatter to detect cycles.
	• LOG4J2-3028: OutputStreamManager.flushBuffer always resets the buffer, previously the
buffer was not reset after an exception. Thanks to Jakub Kozlowski.
	• LOG4J2-2981: OnStartupTriggeringPolicy would fail to cause the file to roll over with
DirectWriteTriggeringPolicy unless minSize was set to 0.
	• LOG4J2-2990: Reduce garbage by using putAll when copying the ThreadContext for SLF4J.
Thanks to Diogo Monteiro.
	• LOG4J2-3006: Directly create a thread instead of using the common ForkJoin pool when
initializing ThreadContextDataInjector"
	• LOG4J2-2624: Allow auto-shutdown of log4j in log4j-web to be turned off and provide a
ServletContextListener "Log4jShutdownOnContextDestroyedListener" to stop log4j. Register the
listener at the top of web.xml to ensure the shutdown happens last. Thanks to Tim Perry.
	• LOG4J2-1606: Allow auto-shutdown of log4j in log4j-web to be turned off and provide a
ServletContextListener "Log4jShutdownOnContextDestroyedListener" to stop log4j. Register the
listener at the top of web.xml to ensure the shutdown happens last. Thanks to Tim Perry.
	• LOG4J2-2998: Fix truncation of excessive strings ending with a high surrogate in JsonWriter.
	• LOG4J2-2973: Rename EventTemplateAdditionalField#type (conflicting with properties file
parser) to "format". Thanks to Fabio Ricchiuti.
	• LOG4J2-2972: Refactor AsyncAppender and AppenderControl for handling of Throwables.
	• LOG4J2-2985: Add eventTemplateRootObjectKey parameter to JsonTemplateLayout.
	• LOG4J2-2974: Log4j would fail to initialize in Java 8 with log4j-spring-boot.
	• LOG4J2-2964: Merge packages from several Configurations in Composite Configuration. Thanks
to Valery Yatsynovich.
	• LOG4J2-2961: Fix reading of JsonTemplateLayout event additional fields from config.
	• LOG4J2-2916: Avoid redundant Kafka producer instantiation causing thread leaks. Thanks
to wuqian0808.
	• LOG4J2-2967: Fix JsonTemplateLayout index based parameter resolution when messages contain
too few parameters.
	• LOG4J2-2976: JdbcAppender composes an incorrect INSERT statement without a ColumnMapping
element.
	• LOG4J2-3014: Log4j1ConfigurationConverter on Windows produces " " at end of every line.
Thanks to Lee Breisacher, Gary Gregory.
