You need to check out the latest code from master, build it, and then use 2.5-SNAPSHOT as
your version.

> This is my scenario: For my website I have used log4j2 for rolling log files. currently
I am generating 3 log file which consist of 2 rolling file (trace & error) and 1 routing

> I am new to log4j2, I somehow managed to configure the log4j xml from the sources in
internet. Rolling file were created for every day and file append-er created for each user
and catches the respective events in the respective files for the entire day, .
> Issue is :
> When date changes, events of current day were added in the previous day log file.
> For example the trace.log file of 1st November has the log events entries of 2nd November.
> This happens for file append-er too .
> For example file append-er will generate log file based on user log's in say log file
named john-01-112015.log was created yesterday. and same user log's in 2nd November a new
file should be rolled out as per the configuration. but the  logs of 2nd November is added
in the john-01-112015.log as said in the previous scenario.
> new log file should be triggerd everyday, but it fails and logs were appended in the
existing log of the logged user.
> When the tomcat is stop started then the new file genereted, but the issue exist until
the next stop start. we can't do stop start in  production env..
> Guys in stackoverflow suggested to raise a ticket ,since it might be a possible bug.
> Is there anything wrong in the log4j2.xml ? guys help me to solve this issue. Guide me
if i did anything wrong
