Improvements

  • Java 14

    The New Relic Java agent is now fully compatible with version 14 of the OpenJDK and Hotspot JDKs.

  • Java Flight Recorder

    A new Java Flight Recorder agent extension is now available to report real-time Java profiling metrics for application running on Java 14, including thread allocation, garbage collection and heap memory

Fixes

  • The agent would log a NullPointerException when trying to accept distributed trace payloads before it had connected to rpm.newrelic.com
  • Fixes an issue where W3C headers from New Relic’s .NET agent could produce malformed W3C traceparent headers
  • The agent now logs ForceRestartExceptions at warning level rather than severe
  • The noticeError API now supports reporting attributes of boolean and number types rather than their string representations
