Django 3.0 Released
The Django team is happy to announce the release of Django 3.0.
The release notes cover the raft of new features in detail, but a few highlights are:
- Django 3.0 begins our journey to making Django fully async-capable by providing support for running as an ASGI application.
- Django now officially supports MariaDB 10.1 and higher.
- Custom enumeration types TextChoices, IntegerChoices, and Choices are now available as a way to define model field choices.
You can get Django 3.0 from our downloads page or from the Python Package Index. The PGP key ID used for this release is Carlton Gibson: E17DF5C82B4F9D00.
With the release of Django 3.0, Django 2.2 has reached the end of mainstream support. The final minor bug fix release (which is also a security release), 2.2.8, was issued today. Django 2.2 is an LTS release and will receive security and data loss fixes until April 2022. All users are encouraged to upgrade before then to continue receiving fixes for security issues.
Django 2.1 has reached the end of extended support. All Django 2.1 users are encouraged to upgrade to Django 2.2 or later to continue receiving fixes for security issues.
