Python Agent 2.104.0.86

Released on: 
Tuesday, February 20, 2018 - 15:00

Notes

This release of the Python agent adds a deprecation warning for customers that disable SSL, and adds bugfixes for supported async frameworks that use asyncio.

The agent can be installed using easy_install/pip/distribute via the Python Package Index or can be downloaded directly from the New Relic download site.

Mandatory SSL

  • Disabling SSL connections to New Relic has been deprecated

    SSL connections are enabled by default. In a future release, the option to disable SSL will be removed.

Bug Fixes

  • Using asyncio.gather or asyncio.ensure_future now tracks transaction context

    Prior to this release, using asyncio.gather or asyncio.ensure_future may result in certain traces (such as external calls) not being reported in the transaction. Traces scheduled with asyncio.gather or asyncio.ensure_future from within the context of a transaction should now be properly attributed to the transaction.
