  • With apm-server.data_streams.enabled in standalone mode, the server now accepts and enqueues events while waiting for the integration to be installed 6130
  • We now collect span destination metrics for transactions with too many spans (for example due to transaction_max_spans or exit_span_min_duration) when collected and sent by APM agents 6200
  • Define index sorting for internal metrics data stream 6116

Deprecatededit
  • Setting service.version as a span tag (Jaeger) or attribute (OTel) is deprecated; use tracer tags (Jaeger) and resource attributes (OTel) 6131

  • Add deprecation warning for sampling.keep_unsampled=true 6285
  • processors.* config, which was never officially supported in apm-server, is now explicitly deprecated and will be removed in 8.0 6367
  • Support for uploading source maps to APM Server is deprecated, and will be removed in 8.0. Users should use the new Kibana REST API in conjunction with the integration package 6432
