Jacob Kaplan-Moss announced the release of Django 1.0. That’s a great milestone for this Python Web framework.

Jacob recalls how the project grew to a proportion that they couldn’t imagine in the first days, and concludes that

“Django 1.0 represents a the largest milestone in Django’s development to date: a web framework that a group of perfectionists can truly be proud of.”

Among the major features in the release notes are:

  • Stability and forwards-compatibility
  • A new documentation site
  • Re-factored admin application
  • Improved Unicode handling
  • An improved ORM
  • Automatic escaping of template variables
  • GeoDjango
  • Pluggable file storage
  • Jython compatibility
  • Generic relations in forms and admin
  • INSERT/UPDATE distinction
  • Split CacheMiddleware
  • Refactored django.contrib.comments
