Django 1.0.2 released

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.
