Introducing Django 0.90

Posted by Adrian Holovaty on November 16, 2005

Since we made Django open source, we've had an amazingly productive couple of months. But the code has always been in development status -- available only via revision control.

Now, our first release is ready.

Django 0.90, available as a tarball or as a Python egg, is the current Django code, packaged up for distribution.

See the install guide.

We're especially excited that getting Django no longer requires installing Subversion. :-)

Note that there's still no guarantee of backwards-compatibility between Django releases at this point. Our goal is to knock off the major items on this list, then launch version 1.0 with a backwards-compatibility guarantee.

With that said, I should point out that migration information for each backwards-incompatible change will be documented in excruciating detail, as we've already been doing.

Feel free to ask questions on the django-users mailing list.
