This release of the Python agent removes support for Python 3.6. It also includes new instrumentation for Daphne, reporting installed module versions, and a fix for a bug affecting Loguru file paths.
Install the agent using
easy_install/pip/distribute via the Python Package Index or download it directly from the New Relic download site.
Removed support for Python 3.6
Python 3.6 is no longer supported by the agent. Please consider upgrading your application to a supported version of Python in order to continue to receive updates to the Python Agent.
Add Daphne instrumentation
Instrumentation has been added for Daphne, a Django project ASGI web server and the recommended server for Django Channels.
Add module version reporting
Installed python packages now have their versions reported and are visible in the Environment tab for your application in New Relic One.
Fix a bug in file path detection for Loguru
Wrappers from the agent interfered with Loguru file path detection for templating messages. This has been corrected on all versions. Thank you to @rafaelclp for your contribution!
New Relic recommends that you upgrade the agent regularly and at a minimum every 3 months. As of this release, the oldest supported version is 18.104.22.168.
