    8385As always, {{{spaceless}}} only affects space *between* HTML tags, not space within HTML tags or space in plain text.

     87== Renamed `localflavor.usa` to `localflavor.us` ==
     88
     89As of [4954], `localflavor.usa` has been renamed `localflavor.us`. This change was made to match the naming scheme of other local flavors.

     91== Removed `LazyDate` ==
     92
     93The `LazyDate` helper class was removed in [4985]. Default field values and query arguments can both be callable objects, so instances of `LazyDate` can be replaced with a reference to a callable that evaluates to the current date (i.e., `datetime.now`). For example, the following model using `LazyDate`:
     94
     95{{{
     96class Article(models.Model):
     97    title = models.CharField(maxlength=100)
     98    published = models.DateField(default=LazyDate())
     99}}}
     100
     101can be redefined as:
     102
     103{{{
     104from datetime import datetime
     105class Article(models.Model):
     106    title = models.CharField(maxlength=100)
     107    published = models.DateField(default=datetime.now)
     108}}}
     109
     110Note that the new model definition refers to the name of the `datetime.now()` function, but doesn't actually call the function. The call to `datetime.now()` is deferred until the value is actually required (i.e., when the model is saved).
