  • Key Transactions

    The Ruby agent now supports Key Transactions! Check out more details on the feature at

  • Ruby 2.0

    The Ruby agent is compatible with Ruby 2.0.0 which was just released.

  • Improved Sinatra instrumentation

    Several cases around the use of conditions and pass in Sinatra are now better supported by the Ruby agent. Thanks Konstantin for the help!

  • Cross Application Tracing

    See for details. Adds a 'X-NewRelic-ID' header to outbound Net::HTTP requests. This change helps improve the correlation of performance between services in a service- oriented architecture.

  • Automatically detect Resque dispatcher

    The agent does better auto-detection for the Resque worker process. This should reduce the need to set NEW_RELIC_DISPATCHER=resque directly.
