Name        : log4j
Product     : Fedora 34
Version     : 2.16.0
Release     : 1.fc34
URL         : https://logging.apache.org/log4j
Summary     : Java logging package
Description :
Log4j is a tool to help the programmer output log statements to a
variety of output targets.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This update provides log4j 2.16.0, to address the critical vulnerability
CVE-2021-44228 ("Log4Shell"). Note with 2.16.0, JNDI is entirely disabled by
default; to use it, you must set `log4j2.enableJndi` (please carefully consider
potential security issues before doing so).  The updated jansi adds (back) a
feature, `AnsiRenderer`, which the newer log4j requires; this is the only change
to jansi.  For other changes in log4j 2.16.0, see the [upstream
changelog](https://logging.apache.org/log4j/2.x/changes-report.html#a2.16.0).
Most changes are compatible enhancements or bug fixes, but there may be some
behaviour changes.
