Date Fri, 09 Oct 2015 03:33:55 GMT
This is a vote to release Log4j 2.4.1, the next version of the Log4j 2 project.

Please download, test, and cast your votes on the log4j developers list.
[] +1, release the artifacts
[] -1, don't release because...

The vote will remain open for 72 hours (or more if required). All votes are welcome, but only
Logging PMC votes are “officially” counted. As always, at least 3 +1 votes and more positive
than negative votes are required.
Changes in this version include:

New features:
o LOG4J2-1129:  Allow PatternLayout to select a pattern to use based on some selection criteria.

o LOG4J2-1145:  Add %equals to PatternLayout to test and replace patterns with strings. 
o LOG4J2-1147:  Add %equalsIgnoreCase to PatternLayout to test and replace patterns with strings.

o LOG4J2-1146:  Add %notEmpty to PatternLayout to avoid output of patterns where all variables
are empty. 
o LOG4J2-1020:  Add possibility to set shutdown timeout on AsyncAppender. 

Fixed Bugs:
o LOG4J2-1153:  Fixed NullPointerException when only root logger is defined (and no named

o LOG4J2-1132:  Do not use MongoDB driver 2.13.3 deprecated methods.
