Prevously, you could only specify a point in time when a rule-based recurring downtime starts. You can now optionally specify an additional point in time when no new downtimes will be started for such a rule, i.e. effectively disabling that rule from that point onwards.

Note that specifying such an end point is not possible for ad-hoc downtimes, i.e. the ones entered directly without rules. This is caused by the underlying Nagios-compatible external commands which don't know such a field. Simply extending the commands by adding such a field is not a reliable option: In multi-site environments you can have a mix of monitoring cores and don't know which site uses which core.
