This release extends the API by allowing custom options to be added to calls to the
Application.StartTransaction method and the
WrapHandleFunc functions. They are implemented as variadic functions such that the new option parameters are optional (i.e., zero or more options may be added to the end of the function calls) to be backward-compatible with pre-3.18.0 usage of those functions.
This prevents the changes from breaking existing code for typical usage of the agent. However, it does mean those functions' call signatures have changed:
WrapHandle(*Application, string, http.Handler)->
WrapHandle(*Application, string, http.Handler, ...TraceOption)
WrapHandleFunc(*Application, string, func(http.ResponseWriter, *http.Request))->
WrapHandleFunc(*Application, string, func(http.ResponseWriter, *http.Request), ...TraceOption)
If, for example, you created your own custom interface type which includes the
StartTransaction method or something that depends on these functions' exact call semantics, that code will need to be updated accordingly before using version 3.18.0 of the Go Agent.
New Relic recommends that you upgrade the agent regularly to ensure that you’re getting the latest features and performance benefits. Additionally, older releases will no longer be supported when they reach end-of-life.
- Note that the oldest supported version of the Go agent is 2.11.0.
