We use log4cxx. And it sucks. Why?
The source wasn't updated since 2010 - Getting it to compile with the newer, more strict VS compilers needs a lot of customization and digging around in the code. Add Qt and you are in serious trouble. Now what? Yes, use the custom build. Does it work? Y... no. It is a real PITA to configure the appenders, and the File Appender is missing a reference. Documentation? No, not at all (not only is any internal documentation missing, even the official one on the project page is lacking of content).
I suddenly feel with people who think writing their own logger is easier and cheaper.
