Django News - open source funding - Feb 23rd 2024

Updates to Django

Today 'Updates to Django' is presented by Raffaella Suardini from Djangonaut Space!

Last week we had 15 pull requests merged into Django by 14 different contributors - including 4 first time contributors! Congratulations to Shafiya Adzhani, Cosmic Process, Moein Bbp, and Aaron Linville for having their first commits merged into Django - welcome on board!

News in Django 5.1:

In Django 5.0 a bug was fixed where filtering on foreign keys wasn't working if the field wasn't in .ModelAdmin.list_filter. It's also solved a crash involving decorators (@sensitive_variables and @sensitive_post_parameters) when loading functions from .pyc files.
