Updates to Django

Last week we had 17 pull requests merged into Django by 9 different contributors - including 2 first time contributors! Congratulations to Michael, and Zowie Beha for having their first commits merged into Django - welcome on board!

Last week saw a bunch of updates to GeoDjango. From 5.1:

  • BoundingCircle will be supported on SpatiaLite 5.1+.
  • Collect will be supported on MySQL 8.0.24+.
  • GeoIP2 will allow querying using ipaddress.IPv4Address or ipaddress.IPv6Address objects.

Also note that Django 5.1 has deprecated passing positional arguments to and Model.asave() in favor of keyword-only arguments.
