Updates to Django

Django didn't stop for the holidays! Last week we had 19 pull requests merged by 13 different contributors - including 5 first time contributors! Congratulations to Salvo Polizzi,, Rigoberto Villalta, Paul Bailey, and Mohammad Yameen for having their first commits merged into Django - welcome on board!

Last week a new feature landed in Django 5.1. F() and OuterRef() expressions that output CharField, EmailField, SlugField, URLField, TextField, or ArrayField can now be sliced! See the docs on Slicing F() expressions for more details.

To quote Nick Pope: "Maybe after 5 years, 5 pull requests, and 6 authors we're finally there... 😅".

Congratulations and thank you to Nick Pope, Priyansh Saxena, Niclas Olofsson, David Smith, Mariusz Felisiak and Abhinav Yadav for their work on this feature. 💚
