Django 2.0 beta 1 released

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 21:09:10 -0500

Django 2.0 beta 1 is an opportunity for you to try out the assortment of new features in Django 2.0.

Only bugs in new features and regressions from earlier versions of Django will be fixed between now and 2.0 final (also, translations will be updated following the "string freeze" when the release candidate is issued). The current release schedule calls for a release candidate in a month from now with the final release to follow about two weeks after that around December 1. Early and often testing from the community will help minimize the number of bugs in the release. Updates on the release schedule schedule are available on the django-developers mailing list.

As with all alpha and beta packages, this is not for production use. But if you'd like to take some of the new features for a spin, or to help find and fix bugs (which should be reported to the issue tracker), you can grab a copy of the beta package from our downloads page or on PyPI.

The PGP key ID used for this release is Tim Graham: 1E8ABDC773EDE252.




Django bugfix release: 1.11.6

Thu, 05 Oct 2017 15:01:58 -0500

Today we've issued the 1.11.6 bugfix release.

The release package and checksums are available from our downloads page, as well as from the Python Package Index. The PGP key ID used for this release is Tim Graham: 1E8ABDC773EDE252.




Django 2.0 alpha 1 released

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 13:32:42 -0500

Django 2.0 alpha 1 is now available. It represents the first stage in the 2.0 release cycle and is an opportunity for you to try out the changes coming in Django 2.0.

Django 2.0 has an assortment of new features which you can read about in the in-development 2.0 release notes.

This alpha milestone marks a complete feature freeze. The current release schedule calls for a beta release in about a month and a release candidate about a month from then. We'll only be able to keep this schedule if we get early and often testing from the community. Updates on the release schedule schedule are available on the django-developers mailing list.

As with all alpha and beta packages, this is not for production use. But if you'd like to take some of the new features for a spin, or to help find and fix bugs (which should be reported to the issue tracker), you can grab a copy of the alpha package from our downloads page or on PyPI.

The PGP key ID used for this release is Tim Graham: 1E8ABDC773EDE252.




Django security releases issued: 1.11.5 and 1.10.8

Tue, 05 Sep 2017 11:25:21 -0500

In accordance with our security release policy, the Django team is issuing Django 1.11.5 and Django 1.10.8. These release addresses the security issue detailed below. We encourage all users of Django to upgrade as soon as possible.

CVE-2017-12794: Possible XSS in traceback section of technical 500 debug page

In older versions, HTML autoescaping was disabled in a portion of the template for the technical 500 debug page. Given the right circumstances, this allowed a cross-site scripting attack. This vulnerability shouldn't affect most production sites since you shouldn't run with DEBUG = True (which makes this page accessible) in your production settings.

Thanks Charles Bideau for reporting this issue.

Affected supported versions

  • Django master development branch
  • Django 1.11
  • Django 1.10

Per our supported versions policy, Django 1.9 is no longer supported. Django 1.8 is unaffected.

Resolution

Patches to resolve the issues have been applied to Django's master development branch and the 1.11 and 1.10 release branches. The patches may be obtained from the following changesets:

The following releases have been issued:

The PGP key ID used for these releases is Tim Graham: 1E8ABDC773EDE252.

General notes regarding security reporting

As always, we ask that potential security issues be reported via private email to security@djangoproject.com, and not via Django's Trac instance or the django-developers list. Please see our security policies for further information.




Support a Great Partnership: PyCharm and Django Team up Again

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 09:38:34 -0500

Last June (2016) JetBrains PyCharm partnered with the Django Software Foundation to generate a big boost to Django fundraising. The campaign was a huge success. Together we raised a total of $50,000 for the Django Software Foundation!

This year we hope to repeat that success. During the two-week campaign, buy a new PyCharm Professional Edition individual license with a 30% discount code, and all the money raised will go to the DSF’s general fundraising and the Django Fellowship program.

Promotion details

Up until Aug 28th, you can effectively donate to Django by purchasing a New Individual PyCharm Professional annual subscription at 30% off. It’s very simple:

  1. When buying a new annual PyCharm subscription in our e-store, on the checkout page, сlick “Have a discount code?”.
  2. Enter the following 30% discount promo code:
    IDONATETODJANGO

Alternatively, just click this shortcut link to go to the e-store with the code automatically applied

Fill in the other required fields on the page and click the “Place order” button.

All of the income from this promotion code will go to the DSF fundraising campaign 2017 – not just the profits, but actually the entire sales amount including taxes, transaction fees – everything. The campaign will help the DSF to maintain the healthy state of the Django project and help them continue contributing to their different outreach and diversity programs.

Read more details on the special promotion page.

“Django has grown to be a world-class web framework, and coupled with PyCharm’s Django support, we can give tremendous developer productivity,” says Frank Wiles, DSF President. “Last year JetBrains was a great partner for us in support of raising money for the Django Software Foundation, on behalf of the community, I would like to extend our deepest thanks for their generous help. Together we hope to make this a yearly event!”

If you have any questions, get in touch with Django at fundraising@djangoproject.com or JetBrains at sales@jetbrains.com.

Sun, 02 Jul 2017 06:38:44 -0500

2018's DjangoCon Europe will be held in beautiful Heidelberg, from the 23rd to the 27th May.

There is a lot to do, but it's very much worth it – DjangoCon Europe is an extremely friendly, open, inclusive, and informative (for beginners and advanced users alike) conference.

We're looking for support in the following areas, but if you have other interests and want to help out, please contact us:

  • Sponsors – Contacts, logistics, room/booth assignment
  • Communications – Press, community relations, announcements, social media, attendee tools, volunteer coordination
  • Support – Helpdesk, attendee support contact, visa help, travel management, chat support for attendees, on-site volunteer organization, speaker support

  • Diversity advocate – Accessibility considerations, outreach On-site
  • Team – Catering contacts, child care, social events planning, on-site logistics

Of course, we're happy about everyone joining us who has prior experience in one of these areas, but if you don't, that's fine as well! We'll work something out and you'll be experienced in that area afterwards.

Your location is not important, either (we can do all things that need to be done in Heidelberg itself) – the only important thing is that you have the energy and free time to help organize a wonderful DjangoCon Europe. You do not need to speak German - all team and attendee communication is in English and we have German-speaking people on board for venue contacts and the like.
