+        Servlet 3.0+ web applications. 
+o LOG4J2-512:  Exposed Log4j web support interface and methods and the LoggerContext through

-o LOG4J2-347:  Give the AsyncAppender thread a more descriptive name for easier debugging/profiling.
Thanks to David Phillips. 
-o LOG4J2-332:  Modified documentation to refer to SLF4J Binding instead of SLF4J Bridge.
Thanks to Hervé Boutemy.

+        ensures behavioral consistency across containers. This includes additional fixes
to abort initialization if a
+        duplicate filter already exists and to check the actual Servlet EFFECTIVE version.
Thanks to Abhinav Shah. 
+o LOG4J2-517:  Switch in log4j-1.2-api Category.getEffectiveLevel has no cases for FATAL,

+o LOG4J2-404:  @EnterpriseNumber" was missing in the ID of structured data when RFC5424Layout

+o LOG4J2-379:  Fixed issue that prevented Log4J from working in Google App Engine. 
-o LOG4J2-317:  Renamed FastFileAppender and FastRollingFileAppender to RandomAccessFileAppender
-        and RollingRandomAccessFileAppender. Configurations using the Fast(Rolling)File element
-        no longer work and should be modified to use the (Rolling)RandomAccessFile element.

-o Changed the "suppressExceptions" configuration attribute for all Appenders to "ignoreExceptions"
to avoid
-        confusion with Java 7 suppressed exceptions. Also renamed the Appender#isExceptionSuppressed()
method to
-        Appender#ignoreExceptions() to avoid the same confusion. All Appenders by default
internally log and then ignore
-        exceptions encountered while logging. Setting "ignoreExceptions" to "false" on an
Appender causes it to allow
-        exceptions to propagate to the caller. You must set "ignoreExceptions" to "false"
for Appenders you are wrapping
-        in the Failover Appender. 
-o Changed the (relatively new) PatternLayout configuration attribute "suppressExceptions"
-        "alwaysWriteExceptions" to more correctly indicate what it does. As such, the meaning
of this attribute has
-        reversed (previous "true"s should become "false"s, and vice versa). Since this was
an undocumented attribute up
-        until now, it's unlikely this change will affect any users. 
-o LOG4J2-355:  Add support for multiple SD-ELEMENTs in a RFC 5424 syslog message. Thanks
to Tibor Benke. 
-o Cleaned up tests and cleared up documentation for the JPA appender following the resolution
of EclipseLink
-        issue #412454. 
-o LOG4J2-318:  Allow shutdown hook to be disabled in the configuration. 
-o LOG4J2-312:  XML layout improvements (compact vs. pretty, namespace, namespace prefix,
root element). 
-o LOG4J2-388:  Update Java Mail dependency to 1.5.0 from 1.4.7. 
-o LOG4J2-325:  Update JDBC tests to use H2 database 1.3.173 from 1.3.172. 
-o LOG4J2-366:  Update commons-logging to 1.1.3 from 1.1.1. 
-o LOG4J2-390:  Update HSQLDB dependency to 2.3.0 from 2.2.9. 
-o LOG4J2-308:  Clarified which library versions were used in Async Loggers performance test.

-o LOG4J2-307:  Updated Async Loggers' LMAX Disruptor library from 3.0.1 to 3.2.0. 
-o LOG4J2-306:  Update JSON Jackson library to 2.2.2 from 2.2.1. 
-o LOG4J2-387:  Update Jackson dependency to 1.9.13 from 1.9.11. 
-o Improved site by adding quick jump-off page and menu for Javadoc links for all components.

+o Renamed the org.apache.logging.log4j.core.appender.db.nosql.mongo package to
+        org.apache.logging.log4j.core.appender.db.nosql.mongodb. 
+o Renamed the org.apache.logging.log4j.core.appender.db.nosql.couch package to
+        org.apache.logging.log4j.core.appender.db.nosql.couchdb. 
+o LOG4J2-41:  Add support for custom logging levels. Thanks to Nick Williams. 
+o LOG4J2-507:  Space Level numbers by 100 instead of 1. 
+o LOG4J2-490:  Update EasyMock to version 3.2. Thanks to Matt Sicker. 
+o LOG4J2-453:  Update Flume Appender to use Flume 1.4.0. 
+o LOG4J2-528:  Rename package org.apache.logging.log4j.core.appender.rolling.helper to org.apache.logging.log4j.core.appender.rolling.action.

-Apache Log4j 2.0-beta9 requires a minimum of Java 6 to build and run. Basic compatibility
+Apache Log4j 2.0-rc1 requires a minimum of Java 6 to build and run. Basic compatibility with
 Log4j 1.x is provided through the log4j-1.2-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.
