OTel Me More: OpenTelemetry Project News – Vol 27
by Eric O'Rear
OpenTelemetry had the second highest number of contributions across all CNCF projects over the past quarter! Post-beta buzz is really building. Thank you to all the developers making OpenTelemetry a reality.
In implementation news, OpenTelemetry Python released v0.7.1. This release features tune-ups to auto-instrumentation, as well as a range of updates to the API and SDK.
This past week saw some updates to exporters, including an unoffficial Ruby Honeycomb exporter and an exporter for Elastic.
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
