Hello all,

I am happy to announce the release of logback version 1.3.0-alpha0.

The 1.3.x series is Jigsaw/Java0 modularized and requires slf4j-api 
version 1.8.x.

Given that all currently available versions of Groovy are incompatible 
with Java 9, at least when built with Maven, we have momentarily dropped 
support for Groovy configuration, a.k.a Gaffer.

The 1.3.x series requires Java 7 at runtime.

If you wish to build logback from source, you will need Java 9.

Please refer to the news page for precise details.
