Subject Re: SyslogAppender parameter name change
Date Fri, 03 Feb 2017 00:09:36 GMT
Sorry for that and thanks for letting us know!

I wonder if parameter names can have aliases so we can support both the old and the new name
without causing users inconvenience. If possible we should address this for 2.8.1.

still has the parameter listed as "reconnectionDelayMillis" but the code is now obviously
looking for "reconnectDelayMillis". I'm going to change my config to use the new name, but
I thought I'd point out the disconnect as it had me confused for a bit. Thanks - Sam
