                                     <ul>
-						<li>
-							<h3>Renamed namespaces</h3>
-							<p>
-								Renamed namespace <span class="code">log4net.spi</span> to <span class="code">log4net.Core</span>. 
-								Renamed namespace <span class="code">log4net.helpers</span> to <span class="code">log4net.Util</span>.

-							<p>
-								In the <span class="code">log4net.Config</span> namespace the <span class="code">DOMConfigurator</span>, 
-								<span class="code">DOMConfiguratorAttribute</span>, <span class="code">DomainAttribute</span>, 
-								and <span class="code">AliasDomainAttribute</span> have been marked as obsolete. These types are
-								still available and functional in this release.
-							</p>
-							<p>	
-								The <span class="code">XmlConfigurator</span> and <span class="code">XmlConfiguratorAttribute</span> 
-								types replace <span class="code">DOMConfigurator</span> and 
-								<span class="code">DOMConfiguratorAttribute</span>. The <span class="code">RepositoryAttribute</span> 
-								and <span class="code">AliasRepositoryAttribute</span> types replace 
-								<span class="code">DomainAttribute</span> and <span class="code">AliasDomainAttribute</span>. 
-							</p>
-						</li>
-						<li>
-							<h3>Fixed pascal casing of type names</h3>
-							<p>
-								Renamed <span class="code">AdoNetAppender</span>, <span class="code">AspNetTraceAppender</span>, 
-								<span class="code">SmtpAppender</span>, <span class="code">Iso8601DateFormatter</span>, 
-								<span class="code">MdcFilter</span>, and <span class="code">NdcFilter</span>.
-								Note that the config file type resolver is case insensitive so this is only a breaking change 
-								for code that programmatically creates a type that has been renamed.
-							</p>
-						</li>
-						<li>
-							<h3>Layouts changed to stream their output to a <span class="code">TextWriter</span></h3>
-							<p>
-								Layouts have been changed to format their output to a <span class="code">TextWriter</span>
-								rather than return a string. This increases performance and reduces temporary object creation.
-							</p>
-						</li>
-						<li>
-							<h3>C style string escapes no longer supported by config parser</h3>
-							<p>
-								The XML config parser no longer supports decoding C style escape sequences in strings.
-								Previously sequences like <span class="code">\n</span> and <span class="code">\\</span> 
-								where decoded. Instead use the appropriate XML encodings as required.

-							<p>
-								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.

-								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.
-							</p>
-							<p>
-								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.

-							<h3><span class="code">PatternLayout</span> customization and long pattern names</h3>
-							<p>
-								The <span class="code">PatternLayout</span> now supports long pattern names.
-								These pattern names are significantly more readable than the single character patterns.

-								and <span class="code">FatalFormat</span>.
-							</p>
-						</li>
-						<li>
-							<h3>Customizable levels</h3>
-							<p>
-								Levels are defined by the repository <span class="code">LevelMap</span>. The defined 
-								levels, the relative ordering of levels and level display names can be configured on 
-								a per-repository basis.
-							</p>
-						</li>
-						<li>
-							<h3>Per-appender security contexts</h3>
-							<p>
-								Appenders that interact with controlled platform resources, e.g. files, can be
-								configured to use a separate security context when accessing these resources.
-								The calling thread may not have appropriate privileges to access the resource a
-								custom <span class="code">SecurityContext</span> can be used to elevate the
-								privileges of the appender. The <span class="code">WindowsSecurityContext</span> 
-								is used to specify alternative credentials on the Windows platform.

-								<dd>
-									<p>
-										The <span class="code">AnsiColorTerminalAppender</span> writes events to 
-										the application's ANSI terminal window. It can be configured to specify 
-										the text and background colors for different level events. Note that Console
-										applications running on Windows do not have an ANSI terminal window and
-										should use the <span class="code">ColoredConsoleAppender</span> instead.
-									</p>
-								</dd>
-								<dt><span class="code">LocalSyslogAppender</span></dt>
-								<dd>
-									<p>
-										Logs events to a local syslog service. This appender uses the POSIX libc syslog 
-										library functions. If these functions are not available on the local system then 
-										this appender will not work!
-									</p>
-								</dd>
-								<dt><span class="code">RemoteSyslogAppender</span></dt>
-								<dd>
-									<p>
-										The <span class="code">RemoteSyslogAppender</span> uses the BSD syslog protocol to 
-										log to a syslog daemon. The syslogd listens for for messages on UDP port 514.
-									</p>
-								</dd>
-								<dt><span class="code">TelnetAppender</span></dt>
-								<dd>
-									<p>
-										The <span class="code">TelnetAppender</span> accepts socket connections and streams 
-										logging messages back to the client. The output is provided in a telnet-friendly way 
-										so that a log can be monitored over a TCP/IP socket. 
-										This allows simple remote monitoring of application logging.

-							<h3>Pluggable file locking models for the <span class="code">FileAppender</span></h3>
-							<p>
-								The <span class="code">FileAppender</span> (and by extension the 
-								<span class="code">RollingFileAppender</span>) now support pluggable file
-								locking models. The default model, <span class="code">ExclusiveLock</span>, 
-								maintains the current exclusive file locking behavior. An alternative
-								model, <span class="code">MinimalLock</span>, can be used to support writing to
-								a single output file from multiple processes.

-							<h3><span class="code">RollingFileAppender</span> roll once</h3>
-							<p>
-								The <span class="code">RollingFileAppender</span> now supports a new

-								will roll the file once per run.
-							</p>
-						</li>
-						<li>
-							<h3><span class="code">SmtpAppender</span> authentication</h3>
-							<p>
-								On the .NET 1.1 platform only, the <span class="code">SmtpAppender</span> supports authenticating
-								against the mail server using either username and password or integrated NTLM authentication.
-							</p>
-						</li>
-						<li>
-							<h3><span class="code">AdoNetAppender</span> ReconnectOnError</h3>
-							<p>
-								Added new configuration property to <span class="code">AdoNetAppender</span>.
-								Setting <span class="code">ReconnectOnError</span> to <span class="code">true</span>
-								will force the appender to attempt to reconnect to the database if the connection
-								is lost.
-							</p>
-						</li>
-						<li>
-							<h3><span class="code">UdpAppender</span> hostname support</h3>
-							<p>
-								The <span class="code">UdpAppender</span> config property <span class="code">RemoteAddress</span>
-								can now be specified as a DNS hostname string. The hostname is resolved to an IP address.

-						<p>
-							The build output is now <span class="code">log4net.dll</span>
-							for all frameworks. This is a breaking change.
-						</p>
-						<p>
-							To resolve cross platform and cross version issues we have
-							changed the log4net assembly to use a common name for all 
-							frameworks. The assembly friendly name is now <span class="code">log4net</span>.
-							The builds for each framework can now be differentiated
-							by the assembly title. This includes the name of the framework
-							that the assembly was built on. 
-						</p>
-					</li>
-					<li>
-						<h3>Combined Release and ReleaseStrong builds</h3>
-						<p>
-							The Release and ReleaseStrong builds have been consolidated into
-							a single build called Release. This Release build is strongly named.
-						</p>
-					</li>
-					<li>
-						<h3>New Appender: ColoredConsoleAppender</h3>
-						<p>
-							The <span class="code">ColoredConsoleAppender</span> writes events to the
-							application's console. It can be configured to specify the text and background
-							colors for different level events.
-						</p>
-					</li>
-					<li>
-						<h3>New Appender: SmtpPickupDirAppender</h3>
-						<p>
-							The <span class="code">SmtpPickupDirAppender</span> generates SMTP compliant
-							messages and writes them to a local directory. These files can then be read
-							by an SMTP agent (e.g. the IIS SMTP Agent) and delivered.
-						</p>
-					</li>
-					<li>
-						<h3>New Layout: XmlLayoutSchemaLog4j</h3>
-						<p>
-							This new layout formats the logging events as XML which complies with
-							the log4j event dtd. This can be used to transfer log event from log4net
-							to log4j. Currently the only appender that can communicate directly with
-							log4j is the <span class="code">UdpAppender</span>.
-						</p>
-					</li>
-					<li>
-						<h3>New PatternLayout conversion characters</h3>

-							app domain friendly name for each logging event.
-						</p>
-						<dl>
-							<dt>%a</dt>
-							<dd>
-								Used to output the friendly name of the AppDomain where the

-							All types specified in the configuration files are now loaded
-							using a case insensitive method.
-						</p>
-					</li>
-					<li>
-						<h3>Fine grained fixing for buffered events</h3>
-						<p>
-							The <span class="code">LoggingEvent</span> now supports fine grained
-							fixing of data that needs to be accessed outside the append context,
-							e.g. when an event is buffered. The new <span class="code">Fix</span>
-							property takes a combination of the <span class="code">FixFlags</span> 
-							enumeration values.
-						</p>
-					</li>
-					<li>
-						<h3>Code updated inline with FxCop 1.21</h3>
-						<p>
-							In line with the FxCop 1.21 guidelines:
-							Sealed utility classes. Added serialization security demand to GetObjectData.
-							Renamed parameters.
-						</p>
-					</li>
-					<li>
-						<h3>EventLogAppender 32K Limit</h3>
-						<p>
-							There is a limit of 32K characters in an EventLog message. Added a 
-							check that only logs the first 32000 characters from the rendered 
-							message.

-						<h3>New build system using NAnt</h3>

-						</p>
-					</li>
-					<li>
-						<h3>New source code &amp; distribution layout</h3>
-						<p>
-							The source code &amp; distribution layout has been updated to support the new

-						</p>
-					</li>
-					<li>
-						<h3>Removed DomainAttribute.UseDefaultDomain property</h3>
-						<p>
-							Updated default behavior of <span class="code">DefaultRepositorySelector</span>. Assemblies 
-							are now by default placed into the default domain. To specify another domain, 
-							the <span class="code">DomainAttribute</span> must be used. This is the opposite behavior 
-							to what was previously available. If you were previously specifying the <span class="code">DomainAttribute.UseDefaultDomain</span>

-					<li>
-						<h3>Updated configuration file parser</h3>
-						<p>
-							Updated config file parser to use the element name as the property to set. Also 
-							removed <span class="code">&lt;object&gt;</span> tag, the type attribute can now be 
-							specified on the property element directly.

-							Appenders can add additional information to the events they are logging. The <span class="code">RemotingAppender</span>
