Release Notes

The StatsD plugin now sets all delete_ configuration options to true by default. This changes the default behavior for users who are not specifying those parameters in their configuration file.

The StatsD plugin also no longer save its state on a service reload. Essentially we have reverted PR #887. The reason for this is that saving the state in a global variable is not thread-safe (see #1975 & #2102), and this creates issues if users want to define multiple instances of the StatsD plugin. Saving state on reload may be considered in the future, but this would need to be implemented at a higher level and applied to all plugins, not just StatsD.
