View the code context for the stack trace of exceptions/errors

We have released a new opt-in feature that allows the collection of code around every part of an error/exception stack trace. This feature is disabled by default. When enabled the Tideways daemon stores 10 lines of code around each step in the stack trace of an exception or fatal error.

You can enable this setting in the “Application Settings” screen for every application that supports Error/Exception tracking. It requires a tideways-daemon in version 1.5.4 or higher to take effect.

Sending code along to Tideways is tricky and for security reasons we strip the contents from single- and multiline string literals, herdocs and nowdocs directly on the daemon before sending them to us. Inconclusive blocks are completly ignored and never sent to our servers.
