Log4erl in


I have added log4erl to repository. I've planned to adding this for sometime becuase it seems many people prefer git to svn and wanted to offer both choices. I will not stop updating google code's svn but I'll maintain both and google code's. You can find the github page below

Have fun.

Fixed a small bug in log4erl-0.8.3


I've just fixed a bug in the latest log4erl version which caused a crash and multiple restarts by the supervisor for file_appenders when rotated. I don't know how I missed this one but it's fixed now. If you are currently using version 0.8.3, you must have noticed this by now. You can download the latest one with the fix in google code's. The file is named log4erl-0.8.3_2.tar.gz. Thanks to Mark for bringing this up to my attention.

Best regards,

Small step... log4erl 0.8.3


A new version of log4erl (0.8.3) is out there. This release includes small additions and changes. This release has been staying in my disk for sometime now waiting for docs to be included in the release tar. I've just updated repository and added the tarball to the download section. An update to the manual is due soon.

The new additions include a console appender, few additions to the log_formatter and small fixes. Refer to README.txt file in the tarball for updated API document. The new additions to log_formatter includes 3 new specifiers (%i, %b, %B) which outputs milliseconds, short month's name (e.g. Feb), month's name (e.g. February).

Next release will include SMTP logger and perhaps a simple configuration file.

As usual, please send your comments and suggestions to my email (can be found in README.txt file). Next is to update the manual. Until then, enjoy.
