New Features

  • Support for New Relic Synthetics.

    The PHP agent now gives you additional information for requests from New Relic Synthetics when the newrelic.synthetics.enabled setting is enabled. The agent records more transaction traces and events for Synthetics-originated requests to give you a clearer look into how your application is performing around the world.

    For more details, see

  • Add a new newrelic_record_custom_event API function.

    This API function allows you to add custom events to New Relic's Insights product. For more information, please see:

  • The daemon now uses openssl 1.0.1k, rather than 1.0.1j.

Bug Fixes

  • The agent properly recognizes prepared statements constructed with mysqli_stmt::__construct().

  • The newrelic-install script has been fixed to once again work for users with custom extension_dir settings.


  • The ability to set the appname to a string like: %{FOO} and have FOO expand into the environment variable was removed.
