Monday, December 18, 2017 - 14:00

New Features

  • The request URI for a web transaction will now be included as an attribute of transaction events and error events.
  • The New Relic .NET Status Monitor has been retired and is no longer included in the install. The replacement tool is New Relic Diagnostics. To download the most recent version, select the link in the New Relic Diagnostics documentation.

Fixes

  • Security Bulletin NR17-06: Fixes issue where query parameters were being included in the URL property of transaction trace segments for external calls (uses of System.Net.HttpClient, System.Net.WebRequest, or third-party libraries which are built on top of those). Query parameters will no longer be included in transaction trace segments.
  • Transaction names will be rolled up for web transactions resulting in a 400 or 500 level HTTP status code and a higher priority name has not been set. This helps prevent metric grouping issues.
  • Fixed error that could result in the one time loss of a metric and/or transaction for an instrumentation point at the start of monitoring an application. "...NewRelic ERROR: Tracer invocation error: System.ArgumentException: An item with the same key has already been added. Key: ..."
  • Minor log level adjustments in the profiler logging. Suppresses benign error Failed to tokenize method signature: class System.Reflection.Assembly System.CannotUnloadAppDomainException::LoadAssemblyOrThrow(string)
  • [.NET Core 2.0] For .NET Core agent users on Linux, this release fixes a problem with the run.sh convenience script in combination with a custom installation path.
  • [.NET Framework] Fixes issue resulting in SerializationExceptions when using .Net Remoting.
