Django 5.0 released
The Django team is happy to announce the release of Django 5.0.
The release notes cover a deluge of exciting new features in detail, but a few highlights are:
- The database-computed default values allow for defining database-computed defaults to model fields.
- Continuing the trend of expanding the Django ORM, the generated model field allows the creation of database generated columns.
- The concept of a field group was added to the templates system to simplify form field rendering.
With the release of Django 5.0, Django 4.2 has reached the end of mainstream support. The final minor bug fix release, 4.2.8, was issued today. Django 4.2 is an LTS release and will receive security and data loss fixes until April 2026. All users are encouraged to upgrade before then to continue receiving fixes for security issues.
