26th of March 2008 - Release of version 0.9.9

After a lull of 6 months, I am happy to announce the release of
logback version 0.9.9. This version is mainly a maintenance release
with the following list of corrections.

MDC data in now inherited by child threads. This behaviour was already
specified in the javadocs. The issue was raised by Martin Benda in bug
64 and independently by Peter Huber.

Logback no longer includes retro-weaver generted jars for JDK
1.4. There seemes to be little interest in JDK 1.4 builds. Calling
retro-weaver increases logback's build time by a few seconds each time
-- seconds in which we can do more productive things.

Fixed bug 104, silly but but nonetheless serious copy-and-paste errors
in the c.q.l.classic.Logger class, reported by Joern Huxhorn.

Having been replaced by SimpleSocketServer, the SocketServer class has
been removed.

Fixed bug 105, sockets created by SocketAppenderBase is now closed,
reported by Joern Huxhorn. More generally, SimpleSocketServer is much
more careful to track open client connections and to close them.

Fixed bug 110 in relation with the requestParameterMap field in
AccessEvent - reported by Joern Huxhorn.

Fixed SLF4J bug 66 in relation with caller data when using
log4j-over-slf4j - reported by Frnack Routier.

Fixed bug 129 reported by Michael Franz. As a result, Joran now
supports nested as well as multiple file inclusions.

Fixed bug 100 reported by Joern Huxhorn. At serialization time, object
array passed as parameter, when the LoggingEvent is are now serialized
as strings.

Fixed bug 109 reported by Joern Huxhorn. There should no longer be any
NullPointerExceptions thrown by deserialized AccessEvent instances.

Fixed bug 8 reported by Sebastien Pennec. The documentation has been
updated to reflect the fact that that in the context of conversion
patterns the percent sign carries special meaning, in order to include
the percent sign as a literal, it must be escaped with a backslash.

Fixed bug 52 reported by Kenichi Masuko. The bug has been fixed on
March 8th, 2007. Starting with this release, Joran will support the
injection of any enum tpye, not just FilterReply.
