Pylot 1.11 Released - Web Performance Tool

I just did a new release Pylot (Web Performance Tool). No new features; just some internal fixes and a small change to the console output.

Grab it here:

I am a performance test engineer. I just have an idea to develop a performance test tool by python, just like OpenSTA, LoadRunner etc.
I search in google and find your blog, great! It is very helpful, thank you!

I just started using this tool. It is fairly simple to setup and very easy to develop test cases with XML wrapper. Thanks a lot for providing such a wonderful tool.

However I have an issue,

I tried setting add_header to simulate required user-agent (browsers)

add_header>User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U;Windows NT 5.1;en-US;rv: Gecko/20080829 Firefox/\r\n "lt"/add_header"gt"

Removed "> < symbols" to post the code here

however, tool sets user-agent with a truncated value in the req

user-agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U;Windows NT 5.1;en-US; rv\r\n

am i missing something here?

it is probably a bug.. I will investigate it.

also, why are you putting carriage returns and line feeds in your user agent string?

just copied header content from a sniffer tool. it is the culprit! I apologize for it.I could have tried without those before asking you.

However, how can i use the browser recorder to avoid such prob in the future?
I get erro while running the recorder

C:\Program Files\pylot_1.11\lib>python
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 26, in "lt"module>
from win32com.client import Dispatch, WithEvents
ImportError: No module named win32com.client

PS : Is this the right forum to seek support on pylot? Else guide me to correct forum
