+            <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.

+                                A new log4net assembly is built that targets all CLI 1.0 compatible runtimes.
+                                This build is essentially a common subset of the Mono 1.0 and .NET 1.0 builds.
+                                It is built using the MS .NET 1.0 compiler and libraries but does not use any
+                                platform specific APIs.

+                                Logging contexts can be used to record contextual data that is relevant to the current

+                                <span class="code">MDC</span> and <span class="code">NDC</span> and a replacement for

+                                The contexts are layered in the following order of narrowing scope:

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