Bug Fixes

  • In some rare cases where requests to cloud provider metadata endpoints are blocked via certain methods, the PHP Daemon logged panics from the underlying Go HTTP library. This scenario is now accounted for and handled gracefully.

Upgrade notices

  • On Linux systems, the default value for newrelic.daemon.address changed from /tmp/.newrelic.sock to @newrelic. This means that by default on Linux, agent and daemon communicate via abstract sockets instead of socket files.

  • The PHP Agent installer for Ubuntu/Debian systems now requires Python 3. Debian based distributions with Python 2 are no longer supported.
