Using a connectionStrings section connection with log4net now supported

Just upgraded to Version 1.2.11 of log4net due to the fact that one of the improvements in this version is the support for the use of a connectionStringName which references a connection from the connectionStrings configuration section.

log4net

Previously this was not part of the core release so you either had to take extra steps (it didn’t just work) or use an explicit connection string in your log4net setting. It’s nice for¬†maintenance if your 3rd party tools can just reference a connectionString rather than¬†explicitly define one themselves.
