Django 1.1 alpha 1 released
As part of the Django 1.1 release process, tonight we've released Django 1.1 alpha 1, a preview/testing package that gives a little taste of some of the new features coming in Django 1.1. As with all alpha and beta packages, this is not for production use, but if you'd like to try out some of the new goodies coming in 1.1, or if you'd like to pitch in and help us fix bugs before the final 1.1 release (due in March), feel free to grab a copy and give it a spin.
You can get a copy of the 1.1 alpha package from our downloads page, and we recommend you read the release notes. Also, for the security conscious, signed MD5 and SHA1 checksums of the 1.1 alpha package are available.
Our next stop will be the 2009 US PyCon in Chicago where, among other things, we'll be running development sprints targeted at producing a feature-frozen 1.1 beta package (for a full 1.1 roadmap, see the 1.1 alpha release notes).
