Subject Re: Approach for Dropping LogKit in favor of Apache Log4J2 + SLF4J
Date Sat, 11 Feb 2017 08:38:17 GMT
Hello,
I'm happy to announce that thanks to the huge work of Woonsan Ko, we've now
completed the migration to SLF4J/LOG4J2.

Big thanks to Woonsan ! for the quality of his work and the amount of
involvement on this.

Regards
Philippe
