Hello all,

I  am  pleased  to  announce SLF4J  2.0.0-alpha0. The 2.0.x series 
introduces a backward-compatible fluent logging API.  By 
backward-compatible, we mean that existing logging frameworks do not 
have to be changed in order for the user to benefit from the fluent 
logging API.

The 2.0.x series builds upon the the 1.8.x series which was modularized 
per Java Platform Module System (JSR 376).

The 2.0.x series requires Java 8.

Please refer to the the news page for more details on this release:


Binary compatibility:

Mixing mixing different versions of slf4j-api.jar and SLF4J binding
can cause problems. For example, if you are using slf4j-api-1.7.1.jar,
then you should also use slf4j-simple-1.7.1.jar, using
slf4j-simple-1.5.5.jar will not work.

 From the client's perspective all versions of slf4j-api are
compatible. Client code compiled with slf4j-api-N.jar will run
perfectly fine with slf4j-api-M.jar for any N and M. You only need to
ensure that the version of your binding matches that of the
slf4j-api.jar. You do not have to worry about the version of
slf4j-api.jar used to compile a given dependency in your project. You
can always use *any* version of slf4j-api.jar, and as long as the
version of slf4j-api.jar and its binding match, you should be fine.
