November 21st, 2008 - Release of SLF4J 1.5.6

SLF4J version 1.5.6 consists of bug fixes. Users are encouraged to
upgrade to SLF4J version 1.5.6. The upgrade should pose no
problems. Nevertheless, you might still want to refer to the SLF4J
compatibility report.


Fixed long standing LBCLASSIC-87 and its younger sibling bug 113. With
each call to getLogger() method, LoggerContext will now retrieve the
ILoggerFactory afresh from StaticLoggerBinder. This change enables
context selectors of native implementations, e.g logback, to work

Fixed bug 114 reported by Jason Arndt. Corrected the way XLogger (in
slf4j-ext) passes its fully qualified class name so that the
underlying logging system can correctly compute location information.

The install() method of SLF4JBridgeHandler will no longer resets the
entire j.u.l. environment but solely adds a SLF4JBridgeHandler
instance to jul's root logger. By the same token, the uninstall()
method will remove previously added SLF4JBridgeHandler instances
without making any other modifications to the j.u.l. configuration.

Added MDCStrLookup to slf4j-ext. This class can be used with Apache
Commons Lang's StrSubstitutor class to inject values in the SLF4J MDC
into strings. Information on StrSubstitutor can be found at
StrSubstitutor javadoc.
