OpenTelemetry Project News
The OpenTelemetry .NET implementation is officially in betaofficially in beta! 🎉 Want to test it out? The SIG included this 5 minute Getting Started guideGetting Started guide.
The new official recommendation from the OpenTelemetry .NET community is to use the .NET Activity API for tracing instrumentation. This change allows library authors to simply write to a platform standard API without the need to take any external dependencies, and targets all supported .NET versions – including .NET Framework 4.5.2 and above, as well as .NET Core 2.1 and above.
This week’s Featured Issues:
OpenTelemetry-dotnet #441: Tests and benchmarks for OpenTelemetry.ApiTests and benchmarks for OpenTelemetry.Api
OpenTelemetry-dotnet #928: Npgsql Postgresql client instrumentationNpgsql Postgresql client instrumentation
These OpenTelemetry SIGs are looking for extra support! Open source efforts rely on developers like you -- get involved with one of these implementations:
OTel-RustOTel-Rust is looking for contributors and maintainers
OTel-PHPOTel-PHP is looking for contributors and maintainers
OTel-C++OTel-C++ is looking for contributors and maintainers
OTel-RubyOTel-Ruby has seen a lot of contributions, but would benefit from having more dedicated maintainers
