The Django Team snuck in a release over the weekend. Just this past week, before this announcement was made, I updated to the current SVN trunk of Django and found a few things different. For one, it looks like access to the authentication framework is undergoing some changes. It appears cleaner and seems to put more control in my hands regarding logging in.
The release notes mention which APIs can be considered either stable or in work. One interesting “in work” API reads as follows: “Forms and validation will most likely be compeltely rewritten to deemphasize Manipulators in favor of validation-aware models.” This is a really interesting concept which I’m interested to see worked out.
