    228229If you were somehow relying on the fact that you could change your {{{urls.py}}} files and not have to restart Django, you can no longer do that. Edits require a restart.

     231== Unicode merge ==
     232
     233In [5609], the UnicodeBranch was merged into trunk. For any installations using ASCII data, this is fully backwards compatible.
     234
     235If you were using non-ASCII data, Django would have behaved unreliably in some cases previously and so backwards-compatibility was neither completely possible nor desirable. However, some people may have been able to get by with non-ASCII data successfully. They might now experience some different errors to previously. Porting code to work correctly with non-ASCII data is fairly simple. Follow [http://code.djangoproject.com/wiki/UnicodeBranch#PortingApplicationsTheQuickChecklist this checklist] for fastest results.
