JFrog introduced Project Pyrsia, an open-source software community initiative that utilizes blockchain technology to secure software packages (A.K.A Binaries) from vulnerabilities and malicious code.
Bugsnag can now manage the stability of games built with Unreal for Android and iOS users, as well as monitor stability and native errors for Electron apps.
“We recognize the pressure businesses are under to develop cutting-edge apps that deliver a superior customer experience,” said Duncan Hewett, VP of the Bugsnag Product Group at SmartBear. “Our goal with Unreal Engine and Electron support is to arm teams with the tools they need to continue to innovate at their desired pace without worrying about app quality and the potential impact on customers ...”
Maintaining superior application stability has never been more important to remain competitive in today’s digital environment. Money spent on video games set a new U.S. record at $56.9 billion in 2020. Additionally, desktop app usage makes up nearly 50% of application usage across the internet. Users have high expectations from their games and desktop apps, like superior stability, speed, and availability of new capabilities and content.
The benefits of Unreal Engine and Electron support for Bugsnag include:
- Increased developer productivity with automation, diagnostics, and code ownership: Engineering teams can automatically capture every error with comprehensive diagnostics to gain actionable insights into how to improve app stability and streamline development and debugging.
- Maximized engagement and retention by prioritizing user experience: Bugsnag’s latest updates arm teams with visibility into errors impacting important customer segments or critical app functions and prioritize them to minimize impact to UX.
- Reduced technical debt and accelerated innovation: Users can now seamlessly adopt a metrics-driven approach for addressing technical debt by setting application stability SLAs and SLOs.
- Increased competitive advantage through quicker feature releases: Engineering teams can standardize on stability as a key metric throughout all development stages, measure release health with stability scores, and make data-driven decisions about when to promote to production or roll back.
