     13== Overview ==
     14
     15The biggest changes in magic-removal are:
     16
     17 * The magic package {{{django.models}}} no longer exists. To use models, just import the model class from wherever it lives on the Python path. Similarly, the magic modules (such as {{{django.models.polls}}} in the tutorial) no longer exist; now, you interact directly with the model class.
     18 * All automatic pluralization is gone.
     19 * The lookup API is changing so that many methods will become attributes. For example, {{{choice.get_poll()}}} is now {{{choice.poll}}}.
     20 * Various packages, such as the Django template system (previously in {{{django.core.template}}}, have been moved around to make importing less verbose and easier to remember.
