A short while ago, I did a presentation for the Twin Cities .NET user group on
log4net.  (You might recall an earlier
blog entry
where I discussed using log4net with BizTalk 2004…) 

The presentation was not specific to BizTalk 2004 – instead, it attempts to describe
why I think the log4net library is so very well thought out.  You can grab it here,
if you like.

The last slide references Loren
Halvorsen’s comparison
of log4net and the new Microsoft
Enterprise Library Logging Block
, which I would recommend taking a look at (the
comparison, that is.)  Tom Hollander (among many others!) later weighed
in with this
piece
.

Lastly, 1.2.9 beta of log4net has
recently become available (release notes here)….However,
my extensions
to log4net
have not yet been updated to reflect this new drop.  I’ll be sure
to post when I’m able to update.
