Django 1.1 Released
The popular Python-based web framework Django has attained official 1.1 version status, adding plenty of developer goodness. Read on for some of my favorite enhancements.
In addition to "1,290 code commits, fixed 1,206 bugs, and added roughly 10,000 lines of documentation", the Django 1.1 release includes several really helpful new features destined to make Django developers more productive and expressive in their web application design aspirations. Some of the features that I find quite useful are:
Support for SQL aggregate queries.
'Unmanaged' model support.
Improved testing framework.
Bulk action changes in the Django admin.
GeoDjango GIS support now built into the framework.
