    I thought the slight change of behavior was worth mentioning, and that in
    the varnishadm/CLI section it would stand out.

+The ``backend.set_health`` command can be used to force a specific state
+between sick and healthy or restore the automatic behavior, which depends on
+the presence of a probe. While forcing a backend to be sick would prevent it
+from being selected by a director, a straight selection of the backend from
+VCL would still attempt a connection. This has been fixed, and the command's
+documentation was clarified.
