Hi Mco!

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. After investigating, it does look like we have something filed internally for this.

For now, as a workaround you could add something as follows to ignore deprecation warnings for the New Relic library:

import warnings
IGNORE_MODULES = 'newrelic'

warnings.filterwarnings("ignore", module=IGNORE_MODULES)

Let me know if that works!
