Django 1.0 Release is out

I am happy Django Team has released version 1.0 of its python web framework. It was planned for 21th of September, but they speed up things :)
We can read on Django web site:

Developed and used over two years by a fast-moving online-news operation, Django was designed to handle two challenges: the intensive deadlines of a newsroom and the stringent requirements of the experienced Web developers who wrote it. It lets you build high-performing, elegant Web applications quickly.

Django focuses on automating as much as possible and adhering to the DRY principle.

In my own opinion django is too much “DRY”, and sometimes simpler solutions was avoided by them because considered “dirty”. Anyway, I have followed Django from 2006, and I suggest you to give it a try.

Django is similar to RubyOnRails and CakePHP, but it is more compact and support a very wide range of databases. Django comes with administration and ACL already built in, and this is a plus in respect of CakePHP or RubyOnRails.

The best thing of django is its porting guide: very well written, it is the true plus for an evolving project like this.
I am looking promising also the local flavour support, very userful

I started using it in for a project called BWolf, after about two months of study.

  1. Today was announced a new brand version of Jython. Because Jython development was quite stuck, this is a great news. But it is important because jython can run django as well:

    On behalf of the Jython development team, I'm pleased to announce that

    Jython 2.5a2+ is available for download

    See the installation instructions http://jython.org/Project/installation.html.

    Django runs pretty well on this release. I am attending Djangocon

    where Jim Baker and Leo Soto will be presenting on Django on Jython,

    and I wanted them to be able to tell people to grab a release instead

    of telling them to grab Jython from svn.

    There are many bug fixes, but also many bugs that have not yet been fixed.

    This is an alpha release so be careful!
