So what's the difference between 1.2.8 and 1.2.12 versions?, are we going back on version numbers?.
 I am confused....

Subject: [INFO] Log4j Release Overview


The log4j committers recently voted to accept the following release schedule 
for future versions of log4j:

1) Release 1.2.11 with JMS build fix.  Timeframe is immediate, within the 
next week.

We should have a build candidate by this Monday, with the release before the 
end of the week.  Andy McBride reported that the JMS related classes were 
not part of the last build and submitted a patch to fix the build problem.


2) Release a 1.2.12 version with the TRACE change plus other major bug 
fixes, keeping it within
reason.  Timeframe is within a month of the 1.2.11 release.

We will be determining the final set of bug fixes to include by the end of 
next week.  We want to fix major problems that do not require api or 
structural changes.  If you have a suggestion, please let us know asap. 
Reported bugs with understandable descriptions AND patches will get 
priority.  We make no guarantees, but we want to hear about them.  We are 
going to move on this quick so we can focus on the v1.3 release (below).


3) Release a 1.3 version based on the current main branch.  Timeframe: 
release of first final version by 10/2005.

v1.3 is the next major release of log4j.  There are going to be many 
changes, some breaking, from the current v1.2 version.  We will be posting 
more information about this in the coming weeks.  In particular, we are 
working on a jDiff report that will more clearly show the differences in the 
api between 1.2.x and the new 1.3 version.  This version has been a long 
time coming, and the log4j team is committing to getting it out by October. 
There have already been some early alpha releases, and there will be beta 
releases as we move forward.  It is expected that 1.2.12 will be the last 
release on the 1.2 branch, and all future effort will be focused on version 
1.3.

If you have any comments or questions, please post them.
