Skylight Gem Goes 1.0

The Skylight gem is a central part of the Skylight product and it's been stuck in at pre-1.0 for far too long. Today, we've released version 1.0.0, officially signifying that it's stable and mature!

Along with being a mark of maturity, the 1.0 release also brings a few other changes:

Skylight Doctor

While we've worked hard to make the application integration process seamless, problems do occasionally crop up. The skylight doctor command will run a check for the more common issues and provide suggestions for resolution. If you have any difficulties when setting up a new application, give skylight doctor a try.

Response Type Tracking Beta

Also included in this release is beta support for tracking the response type of endpoints. We're rolling this out slowly to be sure of smooth sailing, so it isn't available to everyone just yet. If you're interested, we'd love for you to get in touch. We'll go more in detail on this feature when we have a public release.

What's Next

In addition to these changes, we're also hard at work on the 1.1 agent. We expect this release to include support for musl-based Linuxes (including Alpine) and FreeBSD (both of which are currently in testing). We'll have more to share on this soon.
