Shortly after last week's Django 1.0.1 release, several people noted that the packaging script used to produce the release omitted several directories from the Django source tree; mostly this affected some unit tests, but at least one of the omitted directories affected the use of Django itself (specifically, of
django.contrib.gis). So tonight we're issuing Django 1.0.2, which is built around an updated packaging script and should resolve these problems.
This is a recommended upgrade for anyone using or targeting Django 1.0 or Django 1.0.1; to obtain a copy, swing by the downloads page, and don't forget to read the release notes. For the security conscious, a signed file containing the package's checksums is, as always, available.

Following the previously-announced schedule, today the Django team has released Django 1.0.1. This is a bugfix-only release containing fixes and improvements to the Django 1.0 codebase, and is a recommended upgrade for anyone using or targeting Django 1.0.
For full details, check out the 1.0.1 release notes, and to grab a copy of Django 1.0.1, visit the downloads page. For the security-conscious, a file containing checksums of the 1.0.1 package, signed with the release manager's key, is available.
And with Thanksgiving coming up in the US, your friendly local release manager would like to pause for a moment and express thanks, on behalf of myself and the Django development team, for all the work put in by all the members of our community to help keep the releases coming, the tickets triaged and the bugs fixed. We wouldn't be able to do it without all of you, so give yourselves a big pat on the back and see if you can't sneak an extra slice of pie come Thanksgiving dinner.
We'll see you again in a few months, for either Django 1.0.2 or Django 1.1. Happy holidays!
