Hi Dirk,

The attribute still exists. However, it is now called 
"IncludeCallerData". SocketAppender has this attribute while 
JMS(Queue|Topic)Appender don't (although they should). DBAppender always 
includes called data, since comparatively computing caller data is much 
faster than inserting into a DB.

Does this help?
