This release of the Python agent adds a deprecation warning for customers that disable SSL, and adds bugfixes for supported async frameworks that use asyncio.
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.
Disabling SSL connections to New Relic has been deprecated
SSL connections are enabled by default. In a future release, the option to disable SSL will be removed.
Using asyncio.gather or asyncio.ensure_future now tracks transaction context
Prior to this release, using asyncio.gather or asyncio.ensure_future may result in certain traces (such as external calls) not being reported in the transaction. Traces scheduled with asyncio.gather or asyncio.ensure_future from within the context of a transaction should now be properly attributed to the transaction.
