Version 4.2.0

Version 4.2.0 of mod_wsgi can be obtained from:

Known Issues

1. The makefiles for building mod_wsgi on Windows are currently broken and need updating. As most new changes relate to mod_wsgi daemon mode, which is not supported under Windows, you should keep using the last available binary for version 3.X on Windows instead.

New Features

1. Added mod_wsgi.server_metrics() function which provides access to a dictionary of data derived from the Apache worker scoreboard. In effect this provides access to the same information that is used to create the Apache server status page.

Note that if mod_status is not loaded into Apache, or the compile time configuration of Apache prohibits the scoreboard from being available, this function will return None.

Also be aware that only partial information about worker status, and no information about requests, will be returned if the ExtendedStatus directive is not also set to On.

Although mod_status needs to be loaded, it is not necessary to enable any URL to expose the server status page.

2. Added support for a platform plugin for New Relic to mod_wsgi-express which will report server status information up to New Relic if the --with-newrelic option is supplied when running mod_wsgi express.

That same option also enables the New Relic Python agent. If you only want one or the other, you can instead use the --with-newrelic-agent and --with-newrelic-platform options.

The feature of mod_wsgi-express for reporting data up to the New Relic Platform is dependent upon the separate mod_wsgi-metrics package being installed.
