Updates to Django

Today 'Updates to Django' is presented by Velda Kiara from Djangonaut Space!

Last week we had 9 pull requests merged into Django by 8 different contributors - including 3 first-time contributors! Congratulations to Lang Tran, us77ipis, and devin13cox for having their first commits merged into Django - welcome on board!

Django 5.0.4 has been released which includes the bug fixes:

  • Fixed a crash in Django 5.0 on table aliases and lookups on a GenerateField of the aliased table
  • Fixed a bug in Django 5.0 that caused a migration crash when adding a GeneratedField relying on the __contains or __icontains lookups or using a Value containing a "%".

If you're currently on Django 5.0.3, I recommend upgrading to 5.0.4 to benefit from these improvements.

We would also like to extend a special recognition to Mariusz Felisiak for being a fellow for the past 5 years.

In his final year, his contributions include:

  • Triaged: 602 issues
  • Reviewed/committed: 555 PRs
  • Authored: 203 PRs
  • Releases issued: 20

You can find out more here. Thank you for your good and hard work to make Django better for all of us. These contributions have significantly improved Django's stability and maintainability.

We wish you all the best in your future endeavors, Mariusz!
