Greetings to all,
About a year after the release of log4j 1.1.3, log4j 1.2 (final)
is available at last. Compared to 1.2rc1 release, 1.2 final consists
of only bug fixes and a few cosmetic changes.
In addition to many performance improvements, bug fixes, and other
small enhancements, log4j 1.2 adds JMX support, Mapped Diagnostic
Contexts, JDBC logging, graphical log viewer (chainsaw), and buffered
IO capability. One important change is the replacement of the Category
class with Logger class and the Priority class with the Level class in
order to facilitate migration from the JDK 1.4 logging API to log4j.
Version 1.2 is the 22nd major public release of log4j. All changes
except the removal of deprecated methods are backward compatible such
that log4j 1.2 can be considered a drop in replacement for log4j
1.1.3. The only exception is the renaming of the CategoryFactory class
to LoggerFactory class such that subclasses of Category class to be
modified and recompiled. By the way, we strongly discourage casual
users from subclassing the Category or Logger classes.
See the docs/HISTORY file for a detailed list of changes.
