Updates to Django
Last week we had a massive 16 pull requests merged into Django by 12 different contributors (you can tell there was a sprint) - including 5 first time contributors! Congratulations to Claire Pritchard, Lance Goyke, Chris Frisina, laserhyena and ontowhee for having their first commit merged into Django - welcome on board!
This week there was a flurry of accessibility fixes around the Django admin. Including correcting the main content element (#34905), correcting HTML heading levels (#34911), fixing the size of back links (#34912), and adding borders in high contrast mode (#34913).
We also added screenshot taking to Django's internal selenium test suite so that we can check for visual regressions against a number of scenarios including dark mode, right-to-left languages, and mobile screens (#34043).
Thank you to Mariusz Felisiak for pulling together a list of the 204 contributors of Django 5.0! The beta version has been released and everything is on track for 5.0 to come out in December.
