Improve grok filter documentation

Description

I've learned on the IRc channel that grok patterns could be of the form (?<name>regexp) or %{PATTERN:name}

This is not written anywhere in the documentation, and is almost impossible to find in the web. I think it should be written somehow in a very visible place (grok filter documentation seems fine), because it is a very valuable information.

the (?<name>regexp) is very new and hasn't even been released yet.

Otherwise, yes, grok definitely needs better docs
