New Revision: 1712703

URL: http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?rev=1712703&view=rev
Log:
Mention maxPostSize change in Tomcat 7 and 8.
This caused several (~5) threads on users.
Some people reported facing it when upgrading from an old Tomcat 7 version to current Tomcat
8. (reported via documentation comments)

Overall this change is not so important, but it is hard to debug it and match the observed
behaviour with changelog.
