-            <p>
-              log4net 1.2.11 is not only a bugfix release, it also
-              adds support for Microsoft&#xae; .NET 4.0 as well as the client profiles
-              of .NET 3.5 and .NET 4.0.
-            </p>
-
-            <p>
-              Starting with this release log4net uses a new strong
-              name key but we also provide a binary distribution using
-              the &quot;old&quot; strong name key of log4net 1.2.10 and earlier.
-              See <a href="faq.html#two-snks">the FAQ</a> for details.
-            </p>
-
-            <p>
-              The binary distributions no longer contain assemblies
-              built for the Compact Framework 1.0 or the Shared Source
-              CLI - you can build those yourself using the source
-              distribution.
-            </p>

-                                <span class="code">MDC</span> and <span class="code">NDC</span> and a replacement for
-                                them. The <span class="code">MDC</span> and <span class="code">NDC</span> have been

-                                Context values specified in a narrower scope hide the matching value in a wider scope.

-                            The <span class="code">LogManager</span> supports multiple logging domains. The <span class="code">LogManager</span>
-                            uses an instance of the <span class="code">IRepositorySelector</span> class to map from

-                            is to have a separate <span class="code">ILoggerRepository</span> for each domain. When a 
-                            call is made to the static methods on <span class="code">LogManager</span> the domain can be 
-                            specified (as a string) or the domain can be inferred automatically from the 
-                            calling assembly. The default behavior is for each assembly loaded into the 
-                            process to have its own domain and <span class="code">ILoggerRepository</span>. These can 
-                            each be configured separately. This allows standalone assemblies to use log4net 
-                            without conflicting with other modules in the process. The domain for the 
-                            assembly is configured using metadata attributes defined on the assembly.
