Log4j 2.8 released

The Apache Log4j 2 team is pleased to announce the Log4j 2.8 release! This release contains several bugfixes and new features. The new features include the ability to have the RollingFileAppender log directly to the archive files, a new Apache Cassandra appender, a new ThreadContext::getThreadContextMap API method for custom ThreadContext implementations, support for variables in GelfLayout's additional fields, and support for Lookups in properties' default values. Also, this release continues the GC-free epic by updating many more filters and pattern layout converters so that they no longer allocate temporary objects during steady state logging. More details on the new features and fixes are itemized below. [Read More]
