I was under the impression in the webinar about Elasticsearch 2.0, Kibana 4.2.1, and Logstash 2.0 that it would now be possible to change the configuration without bringing down the logstash instance. Is this not the case? I haven't been able to find anything about it in the changelog or the documentation and just wanted to verify that it wasn't possible. Thanks!
Logstash 2.0 still needs a restart for configuration change. We did previously target the 2.0 release for that feature, but it has been pushed back.
Thank you for the prompt reply, I appreciate getting confirmation on this.
