ANN: Django 0.90

Discussion in 'Python' started by Adrian Holovaty, Nov 16, 2005.

  1. After a months-long "pre-release" period, we're pleased to announce the
    first release of Django, the Web framework for perfectionists (with
    deadlines).

    Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid
    development and clean, pragmatic design. It lets you write high-quality
    Web apps very quickly, with very little code.

    It gives you:

    * An object-relational mapper, which currently works with PostgreSQL,
    MySQL and SQLite. (Oracle and MS-SQL support are coming.) This lets you
    query databases in Python; there's no need to write SQL if you don't
    want to.

    * A template system.

    * A beautiful, production-ready admin interface -- for free.

    * Full internationalization (i18n) support.

    * A super-cool community!

    * An RSS/Atom-producing framework.

    * Tons of other niceties, such as generic views (which abstract common
    Web-development patterns), based on several years' worth of solving
    Real Problems in the Real World.

    Django has been used on production sites -- lawrence.com, ljworld.com,
    6newslawrence.com, kusports.com, visitlawrence.com -- since late 2003.
    It also powers chicagocrime.org and a host of other sites all over the
    world. See http://code.djangoproject.com/wiki/DjangoPoweredSites .

    This release is version 0.90. Our goal is to wrap up remaining changes
    for 1.0 in the coming weeks/month, and release 1.0 with a guarantee of
    backwards compatibility. There's not yet a guarantee of backwards
    compatibility between releases.

    Enjoy!
