The reason for the long stretches of inactivity is that the issues
currently existing in JCL are *hard* to fix, and JCL was severely
under-documented. 

However handling something like the log4j 1.2 -> 1.3 change is pretty
easy. I wouldn't expect much delay getting a new release out to handle
log4j 1.3.
