+                            
+                                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.
+                            
+                            
+                                This build is only available in release configuration and can be found at
+                                <span class="code">bin\cli\1.0\release</span>.

+                            
+                                Logging contexts can be used to record contextual data that is relevant to the current
+                                process. Logging contexts are both an extension of the concepts embodied in the
+                                <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
+                                reimplemented to use the <span class="code">ThreadContext</span> as storage.
+                            
+                            
+                                The logging contexts provide a single unified view that cuts across different
+                                scopes within an application.
+                                The contexts are layered in the following order of narrowing scope: 
+                                <span class="code">GlobalContext</span>, <span class="code">ThreadContext</span>, 
+                                <span class="code">LogicalThreadContext</span>, and <span class="code">LoggingEvent</span>.
+                                Context values specified in a narrower scope hide the matching value in a wider scope.

+                                The <span class="code">PatternLayout</span> now supports long pattern names.
+                                These pattern names are significantly more readable than the single character patterns.
+                            
+                            
+                                The <span class="code">PatternLayout</span> now supports custom patterns. New patterns
+                                can be defined in the config file:
+

+                                The above config defines a custom pattern called <span class="code">myConverter</span>
+                                which is bound to the <span class="code">TestApp.MyPatternConverter, TestApp</span>
+                                type. This type must extend the <span class="code">log4net.Util.PatternConverter</span>
+                                base class. The custom pattern can then be used in the pattern string.

+                            The new build system allows log4net to be built for all supported frameworks and

+                            to what was previously available. If you were previously specifying the <span class="code">DomainAttribute.UseDefaultDomain</span>
+                            property then you should remove it, and if the default behavior is now 
+                            sufficient, you do not need to specify the <span class="code">DomainAttribute</span> at all.

+                            has been updated to allow the <span class="code">&lt;logger&gt;</span> and <span class="code">&lt;level&gt;</span>
+                            elements to be used in place of the <span class="code">&lt;category&gt;</span> and <span class="code">&lt;priority&gt;</span>
+                            elements. The old elements are still accepted for backward compatibility.

+

+                            property.

+                        <h3>Added support for logging domains</h3>
+                        
+                            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 
+                            domains to <span class="code">ILoggerRepository</span> instances. The default implementation 
+                            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.
+

+                        
+                            Using a new <span class="code">&lt;object&gt;</span> element, params can now be set to any 
+                            creatable object.
