     451
     452Renamed a bunch of the code Django tables. To upgrade, execute this SQL in your database:

     466ALTER TABLE django_redirects RENAME TO django_redirect;
     467ALTER TABLE packages RENAME TO django_package;
     468ALTER TABLE sites RENAME TO django_site;
     469}}}

     471== Changed database table naming scheme ==
     472
     473Database table names formerly were created by joining the app_label and module_name. Example: {{{polls_polls}}}.
     474
     475Because there's no longer any pluralization, database table names are now formed by joining the app_label and model name (singular). Example: {{{polls_poll}}}.
     476
     477As always, this behavior can be overridden on a per-model basis by specifying the {{{db_table}}} attribute in {{{class Meta}}} in your model.
     478
     479To upgrade, you'll either have to explicitly set {{{db_table}}} in your models or rename your database tables to fit the new naming scheme Django expects.
