October 17th, 2008 - Release of SLF4J 1.5.5

Version 1.5.5 comes less than 24 hours after release 1.5.4. We
realized that the version check mechanism introduced in SLF4J 1.5.4
was inconsistent with the large size of SLF4J's installed user
base. We cannot expect external SLF4J implementations to align their
release schedule with that of SLF4J. Consequently, this SLF4J version,
namely 1.5.5, retains versions checks but as an elective process. For
further details see the relevant entry in the FAQ:


You are highly encouraged to upgrade to SLF4J version 1.5.5. The
upgrade should pose no problems. Nevertheless, you might still want to
refer to the SLF4J compatibility report:
