When a new feature is introduced, the docs mention since when the
feature is available. In order to keep the docs lighter and easier to
read, after a few years, the "since version X" mention is removed.

Each logback distribution already includes all the docs under the
docs/ folder. In other words, each distribution already includes a
copy of the logback.qos.ch site minus the translator service.

BTW, I am looking for a volunteer to write a short introduction to
logback, say "logback in 10 minutes" [1]. Would you be interested?
