OpenTelemetry Project News

It’s official, OpenTelementry is in beta! The Collector, as well as SDKs for Python, Java, Go, Javascript, and Erlang mark the first wave of beta releases.

OpenTelemetry engineers are excited to see the code out in the wild –– this means more feedback, more testing, and more engagement from the community of developers that will be critical in moving the project forward.

The OpenTelemetry website also received a touchup for the beta release -- check out the creative art from artist Emily Griffin. Thanks for work, Emily!

These OpenTelemetry SIGs are looking for extra support! Open source efforts rely on developers like you -- get involved with one of these implementations: * OTel-Rust is looking for contributors and maintainers * OTel-PHP is looking for contributors and maintainers * OTel-C++is looking for contributors and maintainers * OTel-Ruby has seen a lot of contributions, but would benefit from having more dedicated maintainers
