Notes

This release of the Python agent is a hotfix release to prevent proxy credentials set in the agent configuration file from being transmitted to New Relic.

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

For a list of known issues with the Python agent see Status of the Python agent.

Bug fixes

  • Previously, the agent stripped the proxy_user and proxy_pass settings when it transmitted configuration settings to New Relic, so as not to expose credentials. However, the proxy_host setting was transmitted unaltered, even if it was a URI containing a username and/or password. With this release, proxy usernames and passwords specified in a URI in the proxy_host setting are obfuscated before being transmitted. In addition, the proxy_user and proxy_pass settings are obfuscated, and are also transmitted.
