Django 1.3 is out - time to upgrade!

by Jacob Kaplan-Moss

Nearly a year in the making, Django 1.3 is now shipping. It includes a ton of bugfixes along with a bunch of major new features:

  • Class-based views.
  • Better support of Python’s logging tools.
  • A new tool to help with handling static files.
  • Greatly improved testing utilities via the unittest2 library.
  • Configurable on-delete behavior.
  • And more!

To help people get a jump on upgrading, I'll be holding a webinar next week. We'll talk about the new features, go over the steps to follow for a safe and easy upgrade, and cover the "gotchas" to avoid as you upgrade.

You should join us — March 31 from 1-3 (central). It'll be a blast.
