-<p>
-A new <span class="code">sent_bytes</span> metric has been introduced which reports the bytes sent to server.<br>
-Another metric <span class="code">connect_time</span> has been enabled by default in this version
-</p>
 
-<h2 class="ch_section" id="Handling Big responses">Handling Big responses</h2>
-<p>
-JMeter is now able to handle in terms of metrics responses bigger than 2GB, limit has been increased to 9223372 TB.<br>
-To handle such big responses, it can also now truncate part of the response to avoid overflooding memory. See <span class="code">httpsampler.max_bytes_to_store_per_request</span> property.
-</p>
 
-<h2 class="ch_section" id="New __groovy function">New <span class="code">__groovy</span> function</h2>
-<p>
-Introduce a new function <span class="code">__groovy</span> that enables Groovy functions. This can be handy, as JavaScript can be quite slow (same for BeanShell), when used in highly concurrent test plans.
-</p>

+<h2 class="ch_section" id="IMPORTANT CHANGES">IMPORTANT CHANGES</h2>
 <p>
-Groovy is now set as the default language for JSR-223 elements. If you want to use another of the supported language, you have to make an explicit choice.
+JMeter now requires Java 8. Ensure you use the most up to date version.

 <p>
-The HTML source code in the Results Tree View can now be viewed formatted. This is extremely useful, if the code of the webpage has been stripped of all superfluous whitespace.
+JMeter logging has been migrated to SLF4J and Log4j 2.
+This affects configuration and 3<sup>rd</sup> party plugins, see below <b>"Logging changes"</b>.

-<p>
-A new property <span class="code">timer.factor=1.0f</span> has been introduced which allows you to multiply pause times computed by Gaussian, Uniform and Poisson Timers by it.
-This allows you to update Think Times from one place and let you gain productivity.

+than default ones (500 and 1500 for satisfied and tolerated thresholds) declared:
+<pre class="source">
+jmeter.reportgenerator.apdex_satisfied_threshold=500

 <ul>
-    <li>A cache for CSS Parsing of URLs has been introduced in this version, it is enabled by default. It is controlled by property <span class="code">css.parser.cache.size</span>.

-    <li>Since version 3.1, HTML report ignores empty <span class="code">Transaction Controller</span> (possibly generated by <span class="code">If Controller</span> or <span class="code">Throughput Controller</span>) when computing metrics. This provides more accurate metrics</li>

-    <li>Since version 3.1, when using Stripped modes (by default <span class="code">StrippedBatch</span> is used), response will be stripped also for failing SampleResults, you can revert this to previous behaviour by setting <span class="code">sample_sender_strip_also_on_error=false</span> in <span class="code">user.properties</span>, see <a href="https://bz.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=60137">

-    <li>Since version 3.1, HTTP Request is able when using HttpClient4 (default) implementation to handle responses bigger than <span class="code">2147483647</span> Bytes, that is 2GB. To allow this two properties have been introduced:
-    <ul>
-        <li><span class="code">httpsampler.max_bytes_to_store_per_request</span> (defaults to 10MB) will control what is held in memory. By default JMeter will only keep in memory the first 10MB of a response. If you have responses larger than this value and use assertions that are after the first 10MB, then you must increase this value</li>
-        <li><span class="code">httpsampler.max_buffer_size</span> will control the buffer used to read the data. Previously JMeter used a buffer equal to Content-Length header which could lead to failures and make JMeter less resistant to faulty applications, but note this may impact response times and give slightly different results
-         than previous versions if your application returned a Content-Length header higher than current default value (65KB) </li>
-    </ul>
-    See <a href="https://bz.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=53039">
+      60729</a>
+    -
+  The Random Variable Config Element now allows minimum==maximum. Previous versions logged an error when minimum==maximum and did not set the configured variable.</li>

+<h3>Logging changes</h3>
+<p>
+    JMeter logging has been migrated to SLF4J and Log4j 2.
+    This affects logging configuration and 3<sup>rd</sup> party plugins (if they use JMeter logging).
+    The following sections describe what changes need to be made.
+</p>
+
+<h4>Setting the logging level and log file</h4>
+<p>
+    The default logging level can be changed on the command-line using the <span class="code">-L</span> parameter.
+    Likewise the <span class="code">-l</span> parameter can be used to change the name of the log file.
+    However the <span class="code">log_level</span> properties no longer work.
+</p>
+<p>
+    The default logging levels and file name are defined in the <span class="code">log4j2.xml</span> configuration file
+    in the launch directory (usually <span class="code">JMETER_HOME/bin</span>)
+</p>
+<p>
+    <div class="clear"></div><div class="note">If you need to change the level programmatically from Groovy code or Beanshell, you need to do the following:
+    <pre class="source">
+    import org.apache.logging.log4j.core.config.Configurator;
+    &#8942;
+    final String loggerName = te.getClass().getName(); // te being a JMeter class
+    Configurator.setAllLevels(loggerName, Level.DEBUG); 
+    </pre>
+    </div><div class="clear"></div>
+</p>
+
+<h4>Changes to 3<sup>rd</sup> party plugin logging</h4>
+<p>
+    <div class="clear"></div><div class="note">3rd party plugins should migrate their logging code from logkit to slf4j. This is fairly easy and can be done by replacing:
+    <pre class="source">
+        import org.apache.jorphan.logging.LoggingManager;
+        import org.apache.log.Logger;
+        &#8942;
+        private static final Logger log = LoggingManager.getLoggerForClass();
+    </pre>
+    By:
+    <pre class="source">
+        import org.slf4j.Logger;
+        import org.slf4j.LoggerFactory;
+        &#8942;
+        private static final Logger log = LoggerFactory.getLogger(YourClassName.class);
+    </pre>
+    </div><div class="clear"></div>
+</p>
