We’re proud to join the W3C Distributed Tracing Working Group in celebrating the promotion of the W3C Trace Context specification to the next stage in its life. As early supporters of  open standards for observability, and as a co-founder of OpenTracing and OpenTelemetry, we are also pleased to announce that we will be supporting the Trace Context standard in our client libraries. 

We couldn’t be more proud of the work that everyone in the observability community has put forth to create this new standard and are extremely excited about the future of this project.

For more information about the W3C trace context project and what today’s announcement means, please see this blog post.
