New Relic Ruby Agent Release Notes
This release adds support for Infinite Tracing. Infinite Tracing observes 100% of your distributed traces and provides visualizations for the most actionable data. With Infinite Tracing, you get examples of errors and long-running traces so you can better diagnose and troubleshoot your systems.
Configure your agent to send traces to a trace observer in New Relic Edge. View distributed traces through New Relic’s UI. There is no need to install a collector on your network.
Infinite Tracing is currently available on a sign-up basis. If you would like to participate, please contact your sales representative.
Bugfix: Cross Application Tracing (CAT) adds a missing field to response
Previously, the CAT header was missing a reserved field that would lead to an error in the Go Agent's processing of incoming headers from the Ruby Agent. This fix adds that missing field to the headers.
Bugfix: Environment Report now supports Rails >= 6.1
The API changed for how database connections are accessed in Rails versions starting with 6.1 to support multiple database feature. The Environment report was enhanced to use the Rails >= 6.1 API with fallback to old API when that fails.
Thanks to Sébastien Dubois (sedubois) for reporting this issue and contribution!
Bugfix: Eliminate warnings appearing when using
add_method_tracerwith Ruby 2.7
add_method_tracerwith Ruby 2.7 to trace a method that included keyword arguments resulted in warning messages:
warning: Using the last argument as keyword parameters is deprecated; maybe ** should be added to the call. These messages no longer appear.
Thanks to Harm de Wit and Atsuo Fukaya for reporting the issue!
