Apache Log4j 2.13.2 release has been announced for general availability with a slew of new features, bugfixes and minor enhancements.
Apache Log4j is a well-known framework for logging application behavior that comes with significant improvements over its predecessor with support for Markers, lambda expressions for lazy logging, property substitution using Lookups, multiple patterns on a PatternLayout and asynchronous Loggers.
This new version also promises the ability to be “garbage-free”. this means it has the ability to avoid allocating temporary objects while logging. This release will also not lose events while reconfiguring.
The service also ships with two versions of the SLF4J to Log4j adapters. This is due to a break in compatibility in the SLF4J binding.
log4j-slf4j-impl should be used with SLF4J 1.7.x and earlier and
log4j-slf4j18-impl should be used with SLF4J 1.8.x and later.
