This release of the Python agent fixes an issue with infinite tracing's usage of gRPC allowing subchannels to retry, and fixes failing database traces.
Install the agent using
easy_install/pip/distribute via the Python Package Index or download it directly from the New Relic download site.
Fix gRPC retry logic
Previously gRPC subchannels left open by infinite tracing could cause network congestion and strain our trace observers. This issue has been corrected. As such, specific versions of gRPC are no longer required.
Fix crash in database trace
A crash in database traces resulting from nullified settings (seen rarely in Django) has been corrected.
