Because if you don't, surely you risk breaking existing applications
when you upgrade log4net?

I forget, is the "official" release strongly named? And if so, did those
other components reference it by strong name? I tend to hate strong
naming! It's a logging component, if there's an upgrade I should be able
to use it, why should I be tied to an older version just because you
built against the older version?

So the last time log4net upgraded from .9 to .10, that process was
actually somewhat painful for me..  as you note a lot of components rely
on log4net .10..  And dealing with different versions of log4net
simultaneously wasn't fun (we weren't allowed to gac it for various
reasons, nor do you want 2 copies of log4net loaded into a single
process anyways).  

Now, given that most to all of the updates/bug fixes are in the
appenders, it may make sense to split log4net into 2 packages..  one
that's the core log4net bits + appender skeleton + interfaces..  and one
that's the bundled appenders..  

That way, the third party packages (nunit, nhibernate, ...) can depend
on the core log4net bits without having to upgrade every time Nicko does
a appender bug fix..  

This may even be enough to warrant a 1.3 ?

I am totally agree with the reliable of log4net.

I just want a bug-fix version, espically the UdpAppender issue

As lots of third-party components (for example, NHibernate) rely on
log4net's public GA 1.2.10, I have to rebuild all these third-party
components with my private build from the log4net svn :-(

Maybe when someone comes up with a legit feature need that it doesn't
already cover?

Seriously though, I've been using 1.2.10 for years now and log4net has
been the most reliable 3rd party package I've used across many
applications. The only things I've needed that it couldn't do fit easily
in the appender and plugin frameworks.

Don't fix what isn't broken!
