I'm working on breaking the dependency on LGPL'd CPPUNIT (bug  
LOGCXX-225) at the moment.  That is the last significant blocker that  
I know of that would prevent preparing a release candidate.   The plan  
after that would be:

Remove @author tags (now considered bad form and many are carried over  
from log4j and list authors that have never touched the C++ code)
Remove @since tags (a mismatch of log4j and log4cxx versions)
Align Ant build options with the ./configure options
Improve generated MSVC and other IDE projects
Prepare release candidate for testing.

Once a release candidate is out, moving to a release would require  
having enough list participants test and report on the build to  
motivate other Logging Services PMC members to review and vote on the  
release.  At least 3 1+ votes from PMC members are required for a  
release.  Since I'm the only currently active PMC member contributing  
to log4cxx, I'm going to have to plead with PMC members from log4net  
and Chainsaw developers to vet the release.

I've said it so many times that it is bound to eventually be right,  
but I hope to have a release candidate out for review in the next two
