Cocoa notifier improvements: tvOS support and automatic breadcrumbs

We’re excited to share a new release of the Bugsnag Cocoa notifier with some incredible changes to help you better monitor your applications in production.

Here’s a quick look at what’s new:

Support for tvOS

The Bugsnag Cocoa notifier now supports tvOS, so you can monitor crashes in your Apple TV applications. To get started using Bugsnag on your tvOS apps, please visit our documentation.

Automatic Breadcrumb Collection

If you’re already using the Bugsnag Cocoa notifier, then you know we’ve supported breadcrumbs for a while now. Breadcrumbs make it easier to reproduce crashes by showing you the actions a user took prior to seeing a crash. Normally, you need to configure them yourself, but now, we’ve upgraded the library to automatically collect breadcrumbs right out of the box.

iOS automatic breadcrumbs

The new Bugsnag Cocoa library detects when common user events happen, like tapping a table view cell or opening a menu, and attaches a breadcrumb for that event. We’ll also show you any other errors your user experienced during that session before that particular one.

If you want to, you can still send along custom breadcrumbs, too.

Support for NSError instances

We’ve made iOS error reports more easily customizable, so you can modify them before they’re sent to Bugsnag. With this change, we’ve also added selectors — notifyError: and notifyError:block: — that can notify you of NSError instances.


For a full list of changes to the Bugsnag Cocoa Notifier, please see our Changelog and documentation for iOS and tvOS.
