Django 1.2 release schedule - Update 4

Posted by Russell Keith-Magee on April 7, 2010

We're getting close now! We're down to 46 open tickets, of which 32 are documentation or translation updates. This leaves 14 substantive tickets before we can have a release candidate.

The good news for the week is that we are now at Zarro Boogs for the ORM component. That means there are no known ORM issues blocking a release. The bugs that remain are evenly spread between admin, forms, templating, and internationalization.

The bad news is that there has been one serious regression. Revision 12889 fixed ticket #12945, but in the process introduced a backtracking regular expression that significantly slows down the parsing of {% url %} template tags in certain circumstances. This problem has been logged as ticket #13275, and will be fixed before we make a release candidate.

In light of the otherwise good progress this week, we are not changing the expected release date. This means we are still targeting a release candidate around April 19, with a final release around April 26.

As always -- any and all assistance is most welcome; the more assistance we get, the faster 1.2 will land.
