Raygun's favorite features of 2018Posted Feb 7, 2019 | 3 min. (444 words)
In 2018, we launched many improvements to the Raygun Platform, including the biggest ever addition to Raygun: Application Performance Monitoring (APM).
For this article, we wanted to surface our favorite releases from 2018, just in case you missed them.
Raygun Crash Reporting
.NET Standard 2.0 and ASP.NET Core 2
This update was for developer needing to target the .NET Standard 2 APIs. The new provider targets both .NET Core 1 and .NET Core 2 applications.
.NET Core is cross-platform compatible and is the future of .NET development.
Crash by device for easier mobile debugging
Crash by device helps mobile developers understand which devices cause the most crashes—especially useful when you are replicating issues. It’s all about getting context into issues.
Improved Raygun4Java provider
2018 saw Raygun’s Java provider improve exponentially. We saw:
- Support for web apps with ServletFilter
- Breadcrumbs for Java
- Better automatic version support
- Streamlined sensitive data filtering
- Offline storage
- Better developer customization
Raygun4Apple provider updates
This update was a major version release—we announced that our Raygun4Apple provider now supports iOS, tvOS, and macOS for both Crash Reporting and Real User Monitoring. In the same release, we also added Swift support and Breadcrumbs.
APM for .NET and Azure App Service for .NET
Application Performance Monitoring APM was Raygun’s biggest product launch to date. APM means that the Raygun Platform offers one centralized tool to detect, diagnose, and resolve errors and performance problems.
The Raygun Platform
GDPR: Self-service user and data removal
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a set of rules enforced on 25th May 2018. The GDPR gives EU citizens more control over their personal data. Raygun is committed to GDPR compliance across all products and services.
Brand new Custom Dashboards
In late 2018, we overhauled the Raygun dashboards to reveal a better, more customizable version. This new release saw the introduction of a whole host of updates, including the introduction of cloning functionality, auto-rearrange, and changing multiple error statuses.
We have lots of improvements for the dashboards planned in 2019, so watch this space!
What’s happening for Raygun in 2019?
This year will bring a host of new updates and exciting features. Watch this space for .NET Core support for APM soon! Our features are all driven by you—the customer. If you have a suggestion, we want to hear from you.
