Django 1.0 has been Released, Film at 23:00.

I know that it has been a while since I have last posted, but I'm not one to post meaningless empty ramblings on a regular basis. I just want people to know that I'm still alive and will still be posting when I have something worthy of your time.

I will mention in brief that Django v1.0 has been released and we are all thankful to BDFL's Adrian Holovaty and Jacob Kaplan-Moss for their amazing efforts in making this release come to fruition. I would also like to add that the biggest 'gotcha' between .96.x and 1.0 is in the standardisation of certain db api arguments. maxlength has become (more aptly) max_length. There is also now a DecimalField type which can be used rather than the less accurate (for monentary purposes) FloatField. Read all about it at the Django Website.

Finally, for those interested, I have also started another non-computer related blog over at Bucks Bicycling, a site related to vehicular, commuter, recreational and sport cycling. I'm currently working on a fixed gear conversion of an old cheapie AMF Roadmaster Scorcher as well as a 1985 Schwinn Sprint road bike.

I will be posting shortly pending upon the official status of the newest Django 1.0 based project on which I've been secretly working.

Till then..
