As much as I hate for yet another version of the soon-to-be-deprecated log4j-web artifact
to be released, I'll have to wait to tackle LOG4J2-270 after 2.0-beta7 comes out. I won't
be able to get to it until Sunday at the earliest.

The API /is/ pretty stable, but there are other parts (like the Core) that are still evolving
a little bit. One example is the JPAAppender, which is still untested due to a bug in the
beta version of the JPA2.1 reference implementation.

Also, even the API might change slightly. See LOG4J2-242.

I /do/ think that beta7 could probably be our last beta, based on my review of the code base.
It would be nice to come to some kind of agreement on what the next few milestones are and
approximately when we'd like to deliver them. I'm thinking:

2.0-beta7: May 31
2.0-rc1: June 24
2.0-rc2: July 15
2.0.0 / 2.0.0.FINAL / 2.0.0.RELEASE (or whatever we're going to call it): August 5
