 3758       <action issue="LOG4J2-317" dev="ggregory" type="update">
 3759         Renamed FastFileAppender and FastRollingFileAppender to RandomAccessFileAppender
 3760         and RollingRandomAccessFileAppender. Configurations using the Fast(Rolling)File element
 3761         no longer work and should be modified to use the (Rolling)RandomAccessFile element.
 3762       </action>
 3763       <action dev="nickwilliams" type="update">
 3764         Changed the "suppressExceptions" configuration attribute for all Appenders to "ignoreExceptions" to avoid
 3765         confusion with Java 7 suppressed exceptions. Also renamed the Appender#isExceptionSuppressed() method to
 3766         Appender#ignoreExceptions() to avoid the same confusion. All Appenders by default internally log and then ignore
 3767         exceptions encountered while logging. Setting "ignoreExceptions" to "false" on an Appender causes it to allow
 3768         exceptions to propagate to the caller. You must set "ignoreExceptions" to "false" for Appenders you are wrapping
 3769         in the Failover Appender.
 3770       </action>
 3771       <action dev="nickwilliams" type="update">
 3772         Changed the (relatively new) PatternLayout configuration attribute "suppressExceptions" to
 3773         "alwaysWriteExceptions" to more correctly indicate what it does. As such, the meaning of this attribute has
 3774         reversed (previous "true"s should become "false"s, and vice versa). Since this was an undocumented attribute up
 3775         until now, it's unlikely this change will affect any users.
