Fixes

New in this release

  • MobileRequestError events now contain the response body returned in the network request response, if one exists. Response bodies will only be reported if the http response body capture feature flag is enabled. HttpResponseBodyCapture is enabled by default. Response body data will be limited to the first 4096 bytes (the Insights attribute limit).

  • MobileRequestError events now also contain any cross-application tracing (CAT) data returned in the response headers. See Introduction to cross-application traces for more information.

Fixed in this release

  • Fixed a memory leak in NRMAReachability.

Major release

This agent release was built with Xcode 9, breaking backwards compatibility with older versions of Xcode.

Improvements

  • Swift error support.

This release adds a new API in the NewRelic object +recordError:(NSError*)error withAttributes:(NSDictionary*)attributes;. This allows Swift errors to be recorded as MobileHandledException events and to be viewable in the Handled Exception Mobile UI page.

  • MobileRequest events are on by default.

MobileRequest events will now be transmitted by default. They can be turned off by calling [NewRelic disableFeatures:NRFeatureFlag_NetworkRequestEvents] before [NewRelic startWithApplicationToken:...].

  • Improved post build script.

Symbol files will now be processed at build time and uploaded to New Relic using the postbuild.sh, rather than uploading the entire dSYM at build time. This will reduce network overhead as well as improve the time it takes for crashes to symbolicate.

Fixes

  • Fixed low frequency crash in NRMAHarvestableMetric.m:45.
  • Resolved memory leaks.
Tuesday, October 17, 2017 - 13:45 Download

Improvements

  • Handled Exceptions in Objective-C

The tvOS agent now exposes an API on the NewRelic object:

 +recordHandledException:(NSException* _Nonnull)exception attributes:(NSDictionary* _Nullable)attributes.

Passing a caught exception to this API will record details as a MobileHandledException event and record the thread details of the exception. This information will be available in the new UI for handled exceptions.

A new feature flag is available, NRFeatureFlag_HandledExceptionEvents. This toggles the generation of MobileHandledExceptions events and auxiliary data. It is enabled by default

Fixes

  • Fixed memory leak introduced by NSURLSession instrumentation.

​Fixes

  • Removed URL parameters from MobileRequestError and MobileRequest events. The concern being there may be confidential information contained in these parameters.

New in this release

Now reports network request events to Insights! This feature must be enabled when starting the agent using [NewRelic enableFeatures:NRFeatureFlag_NetworkRequestEvents]. When enabled all network calls will be tracked, in addition to network errors. These new events will be available under the MobileNetworkRequest eventType.

Features

  • Added a new MobileBeadcrumb event type that allows you to annotate the execution of your app, to help troubleshoot crashes and provide greater detail in Insights. Use this new event type using the conveneince method +recordBreadcrumb:withAttributes:
  • Added an additional +recordCustomEvent:name:withAttributes method that takes the event name as an optional parameter. This avoids the need to add a name attribute in the passed attribute set.
Friday, March 10, 2017 - 12:54 Download

Improvements

  • Adds new API +[NewRelic recordCustomEvent:(NSString*)eventType withAttributes:(NSDictionary*)attributes]

This method replaces +[NewRelic recordEvent:(NSString*)name withAttributes:(NSDictionary*)attributes] which is now deprecated, with the intention of removal in the future. The new API creates a new event with an event type specified by the eventType parameter, whereas the deprecated method create a event with the Mobile event type and an attribute with the name 'name' and the value of the name parameter. This change satisfies customer requests for:

  • Improved Insights query performance
  • Defining custom event types
  • Finding custom event in Insights more easily
  • Flexibility to define data retention per custom event type

  • Adds helper method +setUserId: to NewRelic.h which sets a session attribute, userId, with the passed value. This method is effectively the same as [NewRelic setAttribute:@"userId" value:<username>];
  • This release adds a new Insights event type: MobileRequestError. This new event tracks networking and http errors during the app's lifecycle, adding the ability to slice and dice network error data! More details can be found at Mobile Request Error Events.
  • This agent now applies the lastInteraction attribute to all events, not just crash events.
  • The applications build value is now added as a default session attribute: appBuild.

Improvements

  • Added support for control characters in Insights data. Control characters will now be displayed by their common escaped character representation. For example: an 'end-of-text' control character will be displayed as '^C'.

Fixes

  • Removed instrumentation of ASI networking framework. This prevents collisions with Apple's private API scans, which produces a false positive when scanning our instrumentation of this library. We recommend anyone still using ASI for networking to use our custom network instrumentation tools going forward.

Improvements

  • Added support for control characters in insights data. Control characters will now be displayed by their common escaped character representation. e.g.: an 'end-of-text' control character will be displayed a '^C'.

Fixes

  • The dSYM upload script can now handle targets with spaces in the name.
