Hi!

I would love if the online documentation (http://jmeter.apache.org/usermanual/functions.html) would mention in which version the functions were introduced. 

Reason: I was looking up the "RandomString" function online today, wrote a TC using it, and wondered why it didn't work ... I looked up in the function helper and found the function missing there. Only then I thought that there may have been a new version released (btw: is there some JMeter blog or whatever that propagates new releases through RSS?) and that the new function had been introduced there. If the documentation would have mentioned "Since: JMeter 2.6" it would have been a much less painful path ;)

Example where this is already quite common: Javadoc (eg. http://docs.oracle.com/javase/6/docs/api/java/lang/String.html mentions "Since: JDK1.0")

Of course this would not have to be done to cover previous versions, so eg. older functions would just read or "Since: before JMeter 2.6" (as for 2.6 it still is feasible to point these changes out)

thanks for considering :)

br,
Imm
