Django Framework 1.1 Updates

My quick review of the 1.1 release notes only found a few things to update to move my v1.0 application up a version.

  • Unmanaged Models – will be very helpful with my latest app that uses legacy tables
  • Admin URLs – uses include syntax
  • Reverse Admin URLs – I’ve already coded this in two apps, but had to comment it

Also, I’m looking at the {% empty %} clause of a {% for %} loop in templates. It will be a lot cleaner than the current method of checking for data in the data source, although I did promise myself not to do any refactoring. We’ll see how that goes.
