Django 3.1 Released
The Django team is happy to announce the release of Django 3.1.
The release notes cover the potpourri of new features in detail, but a few highlights are:
- Asynchronous views and middleware support.
- JSONField for all supported database backends.
- Tokens, cookies, sessions, and signatures now use SHA-256 hashing algorithm.
With the release of Django 3.1, Django 3.0 has reached the end of mainstream support. The final minor bug fix release, 3.0.9, was issued yesterday. Django 3.0 will receive security and data loss fixes until April 2021. All users are encouraged to upgrade before then to continue receiving fixes for security issues.
