1.8.1 windows client UPNP enabled by default

I see there is a slider now to enable/disable UPNP. On two windows 10 installs this was enabled by default.

I have disabled on both as I do not have UPNP enabled on my routers for security reasons. Direct connections still seem to work fine. Just wondered why this has been done?

I notice there is no such option on Andriod 1.8.1?

Previously one had to edit a json file to change that UPnP setting. This is easier.

Thanks. I was not aware of a UPNP setting until now. Did the old version have it enabled by default?
