Release Notes: This release searches for the file log4j.xml as well as the file log4j.properties during initialization.
Release Notes: This is a minor maintenance release. The most significant change is the addition of the "log4j.ignoreTCL" system property.
Release Notes: When loading component classes, log4j will now first attempt to use the Thread Context Loader and if that fails, it will use Class.forName. In versions 1.2 and 1.2.1, only Class.forName was used and the TCL was ignored.
