Java agent v7.3.0

September 30, 2021Download

New features and improvements

  • Support for Java 16

  • Auto-instrumentation support for java.net.http.HttpClient

  • Migrate the Agent’s caching library from Guava to Caffeine (Special thanks to community member Stephan Schroevers for this contribution)

    • Caffeine provides an in-memory cache using a Google Guava inspired API. The improvements draw on the author’s experience designing Guava's cache and ConcurrentLinkedHashMap.
    • We expect this change to provide improvement in cases where we saw thread contention and deadlocks attributable to the Guava library.


Support statement

  • 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.
