Project Status

Apache Log4net was voted to dormant status on April 1, 2020. Dormant status
indicates that the project is not being actively maintained, that no future
releases are planned and, most likely, there are few or no developers left
in the Apache Logging project familiar with this code base. 

If you wish to use any of this library you must build it yourself and should
