GenotypeGVCFs: stand_emit_conf not defined

Hi, I got an error from GenotypeGVCF that says the argument stand_emit_conf is not defined, while the documentation of GenotypeGVCF has that option.

https://software.broadinstitute.org/gatk/gatkdocs/org_broadinstitute_gatk_tools_walkers_variantutils_GenotypeGVCFs.php#--standard_min_confidence_threshold_for_emitting

Here is the command line I used. I am using GATK 3.6, I tried the 9/7, 9/26, 9/27 nightly builds and they gave me the same error.

$ ~/bin/java-1.8.0/bin/java -Xmx2g -jar ~/bin/GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -T GenotypeGVCFs -R ~/ref/hs37d5.fa -V samples135.20.g.vcf -o samples135.20.vcf -stand_call_conf 5.0 -stand_emit_conf 5.0 -inputPrior 0.0010 -inputPrior 0.4995 -A GCContent -A BaseCounts
