This release of the Python agent includes a bug fix related to middleware and background tasks in Starlette/ FastAPI.
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 Starlette/ FastAPI transaction naming and classification
Starlette/ FastAPI routes that contained middleware and background tasks were being incorrectly classified as non-web transactions and named after the background task rather than the route. This has been corrected in this release.
