Yes, an XML alert log is created for you. background_dump_dest is deprecated. A text based file is still available in $ADR_BASE/diag/rdbms/dbname/instance/trace though.

To view the XML log a new utility adrci, Automatic Diagnostic Repository Command Interface, with a slightly primitive interface which is reminiscent of SQL*PLus text version. This also has other diagnostic capabilities.

I'm not sure about the wisdom/value of deprecating the text alert log, but it looks like that's the way things are going.
