batch mode (every 100 samples

-It has been removed so now size of these 2 maps is not limited anymore. This change changes
behaviour as starting from

-<p>Starting with this version, there are some important changes on JSR223 Test Elements:

-    <li>JSR223 Test Elements that have an invalid filename (not existing or unreadable)
will make test fail instead of

+<h2>Known bugs</h2>
+
+<p>The Once Only controller behaves correctly under a Thread Group or Loop Controller,
+but otherwise its behaviour is not consistent (or clearly specified).</p>
+
+<p>Listeners don't show iteration counts when a If Controller has a condition which
is always false from the first iteration (see <bugzilla>52496</bugzilla>).  
+A workaround is to add a sampler at the same level as (or superior to) the If Controller.
+For example a Test Action sampler with 0 wait time (which doesn't generate a sample),
+or a Debug Sampler with all fields set to False (to reduce the sample size).
+</p>
+
+<p>Webservice sampler does not consider the HTTP response status to compute the status
of a response, thus a response 500 containing a non empty body will be considered as successful,
see <bugzilla>54006</bugzilla>.
+To workaround this issue, ensure you always read the response and add a Response Assertion
checking text inside the response.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+Changing language can break part of the configuration of the following elements (see <bugzilla>53679</bugzilla>):
+<ul>
+    <li>CSV Data Set Config (sharing mode will be lost)</li>
+    <li>Constant Throughput Timer (Calculate throughput based on will be lost)</li>
+</ul>
+</p>
+
+<p>
+The numbers that appear to the left of the green box are the number of active threads / total
number of threads, 
+these only apply to a locally run test; they do not include any threads started on remote
systems when using client-server mode, (see <bugzilla>54152</bugzilla>).
+</p>
+
+<p>
+Note that there is a bug in Java on some Linux systems that manifests
+itself as the following error when running the test cases or JMeter itself:
+<pre>
+ [java] WARNING: Couldn't flush user prefs:
+ java.util.prefs.BackingStoreException:
+ java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Not supported: indent-number
+</pre>
+This does not affect JMeter operation.
+</p>
+
+<!-- =================== Incompatible changes =================== -->
+
+<h2>Incompatible changes</h2>
+
+<p><b>JMeter requires now a Java 6 runtime or higher.</b></p>
+
+<p>Some configuration defaults have changed to improve performances by default (see
<bugzilla>54412</bugzilla>), 
+see description in New and Noteworthy section.</p>
+
+<p>Webservice sampler now adds to request the headers that are set through Header Manager,
these were previously ignored</p>
+
+<p><i>jdbcsampler.cachesize</i> property has been removed, it previously
limited the size of a per connection cache of Map &lt; String, 
+PreparedStatement &gt; , it also limited the size of this
+map which held the PreparedStatement for SQL queries. This limitation provoked a bug <bugzilla>53995</bugzilla>.

+It has been removed so now size of these 2 maps is not limited anymore. This change changes
behaviour as starting from 
+this version no PreparedStatement will be closed during the test.</p>
+
+<p>Starting with this version, there are some important changes on JSR223 Test Elements:
+<ul>
+    <li>JSR223 Test Elements that have an invalid filename (not existing or unreadable)
will make test fail instead of 
+    making the element silently work</li>
+    <li>In JSR223 Test Elements: responseCodeOk, responseMessageOK and successful are
set before
+     script is executed, if responseData is set it will not be overriden anymore by a toString()
on script return value</li>
+</ul>
+</p>
+
+<p>View Results Tree now considers response with missing content type as text.</p>
+
+<p>In remote Test mode, JMeter now exits in error if one of the remote engines cannot
be configured, 
+previously it started the test with available engines.</p>
