AFAIK nothing has changed in the logging other than the name of the config file. All the logging is done through log4j. 

Do not know about the windows install, but using the normal (non package install) on linux the /var/log/cassandra path was not automatically created. 

It's going to be a config problem on your side. Check the settings again, check all the directories exist, check the user that cassandra is running under has full permissions on the directory, check the root logger is configured to use the rolling file appender  (e.g. log4j.rootLogger=INFO,R )

I modified the log4-server.properties:

# Edit the next line to point to your logs directory
log4j.appender.RFile=E:\var\log\cassandra\Cass07\system.log

Cassandra is installed on E: 

The var\log\cassandra is created on the same place where Cassandra is installed which is (in my case) "E"
However, I am NOT sure that 0.7 is responsible for creating the system.log under E:\var\log\cassandra\ 
It was previous releases (0.6.5).

Thanks

Ah, running on windows

Have you included the drive spec in the logging configuration, i.e. is you 
logging configured to use
> E:\var\log\cassandra\Cass07\system.log

When you say cassandra created /var/log/cassandra/system.log i'ts a bit 
confusing, what drive are you talking about ?
