I have just done a new release of django-jython, which supports Django 1.7. It's a complete rewrite of the old codebase, and I'm trying to keep the database backends as close as possible to the backends Django ships with, thus it's easier to keep up with Django.
I guess that this Wiki entry should be updated: Running Django on Jython
Some important notes:
- The minimal required version of Jython is 2.7b2.
- Django's image fields are not supported as they require Pillow - which is not available on Jython.
- Supported database backends are SQLite, PostgreSQL, MySQL and MSSQL. If someone wants to contribute a Oracle backend, any help is appreciated.
- django-jython will keep beta as long as Django 1.7 is not released. As soon as it is, and django-jython passes the tests, it will go final.
