+The Apache Log4j 2 team is pleased to announce the Log4j 2.0-beta1 release!
-Apache Log4j 2.0-alpha2 requires a minimum of Java 5 to build and run. Basic compatibility
+Apache Log4j 2.0-beta1 requires a minimum of Java 5 to build and run. Basic compatibility
 Log4j 1.x is provided through the log4j12-api component, however it does not implement some
of the
 very implementation specific classes and methods. The package names and Maven groupId have
been changed to
 org.apache.logging.log4j to avoid any conflicts with log4j 1.x.
-Bug fixes and minor enhancements
+Bug fixes and enhancements
 Changes in this version include:
 New features:
-o LOG4J2-70:  Add getLogger(Class) to LogManager. 
-o LOG4J2-69:  Allow Flume agents to be embedded into the Flume Appender. 
-o LOG4J2-68:  Add support for formatting using String.format(). 
-o LOG4J2-67:  Allow components besides core to create a PluginMap for faster plugin loading
and not
-        having to specify the plugin package in the configuration. 
+o Added AsynchAppender. 
 Fixed Bugs:
-o LOG4J2-64:  Fix compilation problems in Java 7. 
-o LOG4J2-65:  Allow variable substitution on the configuration attributes and on the root
log level. 
+o LOG4J-81:  PatternLayout was not honoring format modifiers. 
+o Created web module to allow web applications to include the Log4j context listener in WEB-INF/lib
even if
+        Log4j is in the container's class path. Allow locating the LoggerContext to include
the ClassLoader. Updated
+        the Loader utility to always choose the child ClassLoader. Verified in Jboss 5 and
+o LOG4J2-82:  MarkerFilter called MarkerManager.getMarker causing the Marker to be created
during the processing of the
+        configuration. This prevents the application from creating the Marker with any parents.
MarkerWrapper in
+        SLF4J-impl was getting a ClassCastException in instanceOf because the Marker isn't
a MarkerWrapper. 
+o LOG4J2-80:  Allow Log4j 2 to be used as the implementation with SLF4J and SLF4J's jcl-over-slf4j
by adding filtering
+        to the log method in SLF4JLogger. Thanks to Oliver Lamy. 
+o LOG4J2-78:  LogFactoryImpl.setAttribute in the Commons Logging bridge got a NullPointerException
when passed a null value.
+        It will now remove the attribute. 
+o LOG4J2-77:  RoutingAppender was calling the stop method for each of its referenced Appenders
and was calling
+        the stop method of the default Appender a second time. It will now only call the
stop method of
+        Appenders it creates. 
+o LOG4J2-76:  RewriteAppender was calling the stop method of the referenced appender causing
the referenced appender's
+        manager to have its use count decremented too many times. 
+o LOG4J2-74:  Logger.error(Marker, Message, Throwable) was internally using Level.TRACE.

+o LOG4J2-75:  Enhanced Log4jContextListener to accept a configuration file location. Modified
+        to monitor files configured that way. Fixed other reconfiguration related bugs. Tested
in JBoss and
+        Tomcat. 
+o LOG4J2-72:  NullPointerException in RollingFileManager when filePattern does not cause
the file to be compressed. 
+o LOG4J2-71:  FileRenameAction did not create the parent directories of the archive files
causing the rollover to fail. 
+o Update the versions of SLF4J and Logback.
