Re: [DISCUSS] Flume 1.4 release plan
The one concern I have is that when adding support for embedded agents some classes were removed. This means if users of Log4j 2 try to use 1.4 they will have problems until it is modified to use Flume 1.4.  It would have been nice to have had at least one release where both were present.
