There are some fragmentary experiments around reworking the message  
processing pipeline and layouts in http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/logging/sandbox/experimental/pattern-layout

, but far from a working logging system.

Development has had the chicken and egg syndrome.  Can't do community  
based development without others interested or involved in pushing the  
project forward and hard for others to be involved or interested  
unless the code is complete enough to be usable.  I'd like to be able  
to get back to fleshing out log4j 2.0, but it is behind getting  
log4cxx 0.10.0, log4j 1.2.16 and Chainsaw released.

log4j 2.0 is currently a set of general ideas and requirements without  
any specific code base.  I like what I remember of what I had sketched  
out in the experimental stuff.  The process that I envisioned was that  
we would do a set of experimental projects around different facets of  
log4j 2.0 and then the community would sort out what set of the  
experimental projects would be refined into the log4j 2.0 code base.

Further discussion would be best held on the log4j-dev mailing list.
