.NET Core 2.1 support

To align with Microsoft’s upcoming retirement of support for .NET Core 2.0 in October 2018 and their accelerated release of new versions, including .NET Core 2.1 in June 2018, AppDynamics now provides robust support for .NET Core 2.1. As our customers make the transition to 2.1, we will offer all of the functionality provided for 2.0, including async await tracking and full-stack and cross-stack visibility into your application and business performance. Simultaneously, we will continue supporting 2.0 as in the past through the official end of life on October 1, 2018.


Branding Updates

The next time you log on to the AppDynamics Product, you’ll notice updates to the AppDynamics logo and colors in the standard toolbar and throughout the user interface. These changes were made within the product to align with the most recent AppDynamics brand guidelines.

AppDynamics Upgrade Checklist For Any Release

 

Please note:  The versioning of AppDynamics language agents is done independently of each other and the Controller. Therefore, you do not need to keep track of your agent versions. 4.5 agents are backward-compatible with any 4.4.1 or higher Controller, so you can simply download and install the latest version of the agent and it is guaranteed to work. See Agent and Controller Compatibility for more information.
