Bugsnag updates

Major version of Unity notifier





We've released a major version of our Unity notifier (v5) including several new features, reliability improvements, and bug fixes.

The update includes app hang detection and improved out of memory (OOM) detection on iOS, improved detection of jailbroken or rooted devices, and much more.

See the Unity upgrade guide to get started.

Introducing Bugsnag support for Electron apps





You can now use Bugsnag to manage the stability of your Electron apps. Today, we have full support for capturing JavaScript errors. We’re excited to share that support for native errors is coming this Summer.

Get started by reading our docs.

Manage bookmarks in Bugsnag’s data access API





We’ve added new capabilities to our data access API to allow you to manage bookmarks, which are a set of saved error filters. Bookmarks are useful for keeping an eye on an error segment and also for customizing alerts and integrations.

Read our docs to learn more about how to create, update, or delete bookmarks via the API.

See additional metadata for macOS apps





New metadata included in macOS error reports will help you identify if your app was running through Rosetta on a Mac with Apple Silicon, providing additional information to help you prioritize and fix errors.

Rosetta allows apps built for Intel processors to run on Apple Silicon. The new metadata is shown on the “App” tab:

  • runningOnRosetta will be true when the app is running on Rosetta
  • binaryArch will show the CPU architecture of the binary being run

Upgrade to the latest version of our macOS notifier to see the additional metadata.

Improved Cocoa NSError grouping





An improvement to our grouping algorithm for NSErrors from iOS, macOS, and tvOS apps is now available. The improvement will prevent over-grouping of NSErrors by additionally using the ‘domain’ for grouping.

If the grouping improvement applies to your project, it is now available as an upgrade in Project Settings > Group errors > Default grouping.

Enhanced monitoring for iOS apps running on macOS





Bugsnag now has full support for iOS apps running on macOS, either through Mac Catalyst or natively on Apple Silicon Macs.

Diagnostics for errors captured include the model of Mac the app was running on, the version of macOS, and the version of iOS that Mac Catalyst provides, so you can triage and resolve errors when your iOS app is running on a Mac.

Upgrade to the latest version of our iOS notifier to take advantage of these enhancements.

Filter for an empty field to streamline error investigation





When filtering through errors, you now have the ability to filter by the absence of a default or custom field, to help you streamline error investigation and debugging. This can be useful to isolate errors that don’t have a value for a particular field, for example, when investigating errors in feature flags, you can understand if these errors are occurring outside of feature flags too.

See the new [empty] filtering options in the search builder and pivot tables.


Discard errors from Firefox browser extensions





Bugsnag automatically discards errors from Chrome browser extensions because they are not actionable for you to fix. Now, errors from Firefox extensions will also be automatically discarded. If you want visibility into errors from browser extensions, read our docs.

Application stability information now available in Bugsnag’s data access API





We’ve updated our data access API to provide stability information, so you may extract this information from Bugsnag to include in your other dashboards.

Data now available includes the application’s overall daily user and session stability scores as well as user and session stability scores for each release.

See our API docs for more details.

Gain visibility into iOS app hangs or freezes





An app hang or freeze is when your app fails to respond to user interactions, causing a negative impact on user experience. Bugsnag now captures app hangs with complete diagnostic information, including stack traces and breadcrumbs, to help you investigate and fix the underlying problems causing them.

Fatal app hangs, where the app does not recover, are reported by default. Additionally, Bugsnag can be configured to capture other non-fatal app hangs. See our docs to learn more and upgrade to the latest version of our iOS notifier to start reporting on app hangs.
