Exceptionless v4.5.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2020-10-05 // almost 2 years ago
  • ๐Ÿ”– Version 4.5.0 focuses on improving async stack traces as well as tweaking web scenarios to provide additional value. We also are now testing the client on every build against MacOS, Linux and Windows!.

    ๐Ÿ”‹ Feature

    • ๐ŸŽ All unit tests now run cross MacOS, Linux and Windows on every build! This will help prevent any cross platform bugs going forward!
    • ๐Ÿ‘Œ Improve Async stack traces by removing async state machines (#236)
    • ๐Ÿ‘Œ Improved how we resolved application version (#236).
    • โž• Added ability to configure default client through lambda in UseExceptionless(c => c.ReadFromConfiguration(Configuration)) method (55ff465)
    • For ASP.NET clients
      • Added .NET Core config support for EnableLogging , LogPath, QueueMaxAge, QueueMaxAttempts, StorageSerializer (#237). This brings parity with the previous Config Section implementations and allows you to do client diagnostic logging without recompiling your applications!
      • Request cancelled exceptions won't be submitted. This can prevent a lot of noise in web applications.
      • Don't include Post Data for GET Requests. This was an unnecessary and potentially expensive operation (#236).

    ๐Ÿ› Bug Fixes

    • ๐Ÿ‘Œ Improved client side logging when using client diagnostic logging to use a Mutex instead of a lock file (8306e83). This should help prevent any issues with logs not being written to disk due to a stale lock file.
