New release of django-jython

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.

That link you provided is not a wiki page but a page of our documentation.
You can update it by editing docs/howto/jython.txt [1] and submitting a pull request.

Note that this is probably not the best place to announce your new release since not that many people read the tracker.
The django-users mailing list might be a better fit.

  • Has patch set

You're right, of course I meant documentation, not wiki. The ticket was not meant as release announcement, I filed it because the current documentation says: If django-jython is updated and please file a ticket and we’ll be happy to update our documentation accordingly.

I've submitted the pull request:
