Updates to Django
Last week we had 17 pull requests merged into Django by 11 different contributors - including 4 first time contributors! Congratulations to Andrew Cordery, jed212, William Hayes and Giannis Terzopoulos for having their first commits merged into Django - welcome on board!
Some key updates from last week:
- Python 3.12 support has been added to Django 4.2.8 (release scheduled for December 4th).
- From Django 5.1, the HTML attribute
aria-describedbyis available on form fieldsets - enabling screen readers to associate fieldsets with their help text.
- The Django accessibility team has publicly stated their targeted assistive technology support for the Django admin. If you are a user of any of these, we'd love for you to introduce yourself to the team in the Django Discord #accessibility channel 💚
The accessibility team is also looking for feedback on their guidelines for Django contributors. Both “general sentiment” comments and specific issues / possible improvements are very welcome!
