Today, the latest and greatest version of Django has been released. And we’ve tried to waste no time making it available to you with the new Django 1.4 one-click installer:
The most prominent new feature of Django 1.4 is time zone support. Django can now store dates and times in a time zone-aware way. Now dates and times can be converted to visitors’ local time zone in templates and forms automatically. This feature is likely to help many developers avoid time zone pitfalls, including daylight saving time transitions often observed this time of year.
Other new developments include:
- More secure password hashing
- New default project layout
- Support for in-browser testing, such as Selenium
