Progress and status specific to this repository is tracked in our local project boards and milestones.


OpenTelemetry-Go Contrib ensures compatibility with the current supported versions of the Go language:

Each major Go release is supported until there are two newer major releases. For example, Go 1.5 was supported until the Go 1.7 release, and Go 1.6 was supported until the Go 1.8 release.

For versions of Go that are no longer supported upstream, opentelemetry-go-contrib will stop ensuring compatibility with these versions in the following manner:

  • A minor release of opentelemetry-go-contrib will be made to add support for the new supported release of Go.
  • The following minor release of opentelemetry-go-contrib will remove compatibility testing for the oldest (now archived upstream) version of Go. This, and future, releases of opentelemetry-go-contrib may include features only supported by the currently supported versions of Go.

This project is tested on the following systems.
