    1818 * All automatic pluralization is gone.
    1919 * 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.

     122
     123Because there's no longer any concept of {{{module_name}}}, database table names are now formed by joining the {{{app_label}}} and model class name (lower case). Example: {{{polls_poll}}}.
