Support for synthetic monitors
The Ruby agent now gives you additional information for requests from synthetic monitors. More transaction traces and events give you a clearer look into how your application is performing around the world.

Support for multiple job per fork gems with Resque
The resque-jobs-per-fork and resque-multi-job-forks gems alter Resque to fork every N jobs instead of every job. This previously caused issues for the Ruby agent, but those have been resolved. These gems are fully supported.
Running Resque with the FORK_PER_JOB=false environment variable setting is also supported now.
For more details on our Resque support, see https://docs.newrelic.com/docs/agents/ruby-agent/background-jobs/resque-...
Support agent when starting Resque Pool from Rake task
When running resque-pool with its provided rake tasks, the agent would not start up properly. Thanks Tiago Sousa for the fix!
Fix for DelayedJob + Rails 4.x queue depth metrics
The Ruby agent periodically records DelayedJob queuedepth as a metric, but this didn't work properly in Rails 4.x applications. This has been fixed. Thanks Jonathan del Strother for his help with the issue!
Fix for failure in background transactions with rules.ignore_url_regexes
The recently added feature for ignoring transactions via URL regexes caused errors for non-web transactions. This has been fixed.
Rename the TransactionNamer.name method to TransactionNamer.name_for
The internal TransactionNamer class had a class method called 'name', with a different signature than the existing Class#name method and could cause problems when trying to introspect instances of the class.
Thanks to Dennis Taylor for contributing this fix!
