Status of 4.2 release blockers.

Hi yโ€™all :wave: ,

Time to kick off the release process for the next major release, Django 4.2! :tada:

The 4.2 feature freeze is scheduled (according to the roadmap) for January 16th. Iโ€™d like to release the alpha on the same day :crossed_fingers: .

4.2 is already full of new goodies :coin:, but we have two larger patches we want to finish reviewing:

Many thanks to contributors from all over the world :world_map: :green_heart:

Best,
Mariusz

Not immediately, but psycopg v3 provides async connections and cursors so it was necessary in the long run.
