The on-line docs have:


Any chance that you are using log4cxx 0.9.7?  Use of log4cxx 0.9.7 is  
strongly discouraged due to a large number of issues that have been  
fixed in the SVN.  Unfortunately, we have not yet been able to get an  
ASF release out to replace that pre-ASF release.

Use of non-local static variables (like log4cxx::Level::INFO) have  
been the caused of a lot of problems in log4cxx.   I had tried to  
preserve the log4cxx::Level::INFO and the other levels, but their  
continued presence cause problems on some platforms and there is no  
way to do them right.  So any code that used log4cxx::Level::INFO  
will to been changed to use log4cxx::Level::getInfo().
