Hi y’all ,
Time to kick off the release process for the next major release, Django 4.2!
The 4.2 feature freeze is scheduled (according to the roadmap) for January 16th. I’d like to release the alpha on the same day .
4.2 is already full of new goodies , but we have two larger patches we want to finish reviewing:
Many thanks to contributors from all over the world
That’s great news!
With the included support for psycopg3, is there any advantages in going full async?
Not immediately, but
psycopg v3 provides async connections and cursors so it was necessary in the long run.
so where would this put third-party packages like django-storages?
django-storages will still work the same, it’s just the
STORAGES setting that is a new way of pointing to your storage backends.
The release candidate stage marks the string freeze and the call for translators to submit translations.
We can’t find the release notes strings for version 4.2 on Transifex.
Documentation translations for 4.2 will be available after the final release, this is the current workflow.
Thanks for your clarification, based on that I proposed a change in the flow.
