Subject Re: timezone question

Thanks for the help, I'm running the 0.9.7 version since this is a
production level application, I'll be trying to move to 0.9.8 as soon as it
seems stable.  The 0.9.7 handling forces the use of GMT time unless
explicitly specified in the properties file to use another timezone.  I
looked at the 0.9.8 source (timezone.cpp) and the issue should be resolved
in the 0.9.8 tree.

If the timezone is omitted, the default time zone will be used.  You
would only specify the timezone on an appender when you wanted to be

different way.  Instead of timezone being a separate property of the
appender, it can be specified as the second parameter to the %d
conversion pattern.  For example, "%d{yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss}{GMT}Z %m %n"

Before 0.9.8, log4cxx will be modified to follow log4j's timezone
specification.  The JIRA issue is
