2.1.14 is an agent version, 5 years old now, not a plugin version. I'm 
not sure exactly when did the --additional-content flag appears, but I'm 
quite confident it didn't existed at that time.

As explained here (http://fusioninventory.org/documentation/bugreport, 
check the software list appears in the agent output, and if it does, you 
probably have a server issue.

Anyway, the basic idea about "additional content" is:
- if this content type is already handled by GLPI (for instance, adding 
additional software or hardware not found the agent), GLPI will display 
it as usual
- if this content type is unknown from GLPI (for instance, list of SSL 
certificates) you won't be able to exploit it on server side without 
server-side developement
