January Launch Notes: Announcing APM .NET Core support and more

Raygun’s Launch Notes are your regular roundup of all the improvements we made to Raygun last month—from major features to performance updates.


The latest Dashboard enhancements

The goal of the Dashboard is to allow you to customize how you display your data quickly and easily. Our latest enhancements have made the Dashboard even easier to navigate, plus we’ve added two brand new tiles: a free text tile and a paragraph tile.

  • The free text tile is helpful when you need to compare metrics on the same dashboard, for example, if you need to compare the performance of your iOS app next to your Andriod app.

  • The paragraph tile comes in handy when you need to annotate your dashboard—perhaps you need to add important instructions or remind yourself of some KPIs.

Announcing APM .NET Core support in closed beta

We are excited to announce that we will begin our closed beta testing of .NET Core support for Raygun APM in February. We will be supporting ASP.NET Core versions 1 through 2.2 and will be extending this for 3.0 support soon. We will also be supporting self-hosted Kestrel as well as applications hosted in IIS using the ASP.NET Core module.

We will have details about the beta in next month’s Launch Notes.


Minor fixes worth a mention

In other APM news, we had a new APM agent update in January. The v1.0.834 release (Jan 14, 2019) fixed a bug fix for a memory leak in the profiler.

The latest stable release of the Raygun APM Agent and profiler is recommended and includes the latest features and improvements. Next time you log in to Raygun, you’ll see the banner at the top for installing the new agent.
