Simplifying NLog.Extended.dll usage

14 Apr 2011

I’d like to let you know about small simplification to using targets and layout renderers from NLog.Extended.dll. Previously you had to register them using configuration section:

<extensions>
<add assembly="NLog.Extended" />
</extensions>

Starting with today’s Nightly build, this is no longer required - you can simply use extended items without extra registration (exactly like it worked in NLog 1.0). The only change is that you must have NLog.Extended.dll in the same directory as NLog.dll - you will get exception if it’s not present.

If you need NLog.Extended, please give this feature a try and report any issues you find.
