This release of the Python agent fixes a memory leak that occurs on Python 2 when monitoring WSGI applications.
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.
Fix memory leak on Python 2 WSGI applications
When using the 4.16.0 agent on Python 2 to monitor WSGI applications, the agent would cause memory to be allocated on each request. On Python 2, this memory was never deallocated due to a reference cycle. This has now been corrected.
