Django 1.0 release candidate now available

In accordance with the (updated) Django 1.0 release roadmap, today we've released the first release candidate for Django 1.0.

To grab a copy of the release candidate, head over to the Django downloads page, and be sure to read the release notes. Please keep in mind, though, that this release is not meant for production use, and is intended primarily for developers who are interested in checking out the new features in 1.0 and helping to identify and resolve bugs prior to the final release. The 1.0 alpha and beta releases and release candidates will not receive long-term support and will not be updated with security fixes, since their main purpose is to serve as a stepping-stone on the path to the final Django 1.0, due to be released as soon as possible..

For distributors and for verification purposes, a file containing the MD5 and SHA1 checksums of the release candidate package has been placed on the djangoproject.com server. This file is PGP-signed with the Django release manager's public key. This key has the ID 0x8C8B2AE1 and can be obtained from, e.g., the MIT PGP keyserver.
