Is there a way to get the version number of the exe or dll using a formatter in the logging Application Block?  What about the windows user name too? That would be so useful to me when reading error logs.

You can include them in the logs by adding them to the ExtendedProperties collection property of a LogEntry object and its content will be automatically included in the log entries if you included the  {dictionary({key} - {value} token in your formatter's template.
