sentry-wrapper Changelog

2.1.0 (2018-05-23)

* Add flag `-t` or `--timeout`. After the specified amount of time,
sentry-wrapper exits and raises an error to Sentry.
This is implemented by raising SIGALARM. If the wrapped application catches
the signal, timeout won't work.

2.0.0 (2015-08-20)

* Accept extra arguments that are given to the wrapped command, like::

sentry-wrapper entrypoint -- arg1 arg2 arg3

1.0.0 (2015-04-20)

* Initial version.
