Django 1.0

Congratulations to the entire development team and Django community for making the Django 1.0 release today! It’s a monumental accomplishment, and I’m very pleased to see it here.

I’m not as active in the community these days, but I’m still using the project on a regular basis as one of my “secret weapons” to get things done quickly. It’s worth noting that there are some definite changes in the 1.0 release from even what’s in the various books now available for Django. If you’re heading in to the 1.0 release and can’t find something you expect to be there, make sure you check the online documentation at – it’s very complete and very worthwhile.
