    11= Version 1.0 Features =
    22
    3 In addition to this list, the [NewformsAdminBranch newforms-admin branch] will need to be completed and merged prior to 1.0 (work is being done on this by a number of people). Discussion of this list of features and rationale for it is available in [http://groups.google.com/group/django-developers/msg/c2be209a9f10ff30 this thread on django-developers].
     3This page contains the list of features to be included in Django 1.0, and their status. See VersionOneRoadmap for more details on the process.

    4232== Comments about Specific Features ==
    4333
    44 === Serialization ===
     34=== Comments ===
    4535
    46 #2930 has not been decided and does not include a patch.
    47 
    48 #2843 is not changes the API only in a compatible way and there is no
    49 decision in the ticket.
    50 
    51 #2650 is a bug and not an enhancement, and it
    52 does not include a patch but complete files (but bug fixes should go in
    53 1.0 anyway, if possible).
    54 
    55 #2553 proposes to make generic views respond
    56 in formats other than html, and it does not go into details nor does it
    57 include a patch. From the description it isn't clear what it
    58 actually proposes, but it looks like a compatible change.
    59 
    60 === Comments ===
    61 Jacob plans to rewrite them for newforms. This change rather
    62 belongs into the category 'newforms'. Is it really necessary to rewrite the comments in 1.0?
    63 Other than the changes in admin, the comments system rewrite shouldn't
    64 directly influence the API of newforms. -- mir
    65 
    66 === Oracle ===
    67 
    68 While it doesn't change APIs, having an Oracle backend is great
    69 for the 1.0 release, even if it doesn't contribute to the #1 goal. And
    70 there is great impetus behind it.  Please see the [wiki:OracleBranch Oracle Branch] wiki page for technical details.
    71 
    72 #4140 needs a design decision: should we warn or disallow database reserved words when used as column names?
    73 
    74 #4186 is a significant limitation of Oracle and CLOB columns that can't be worked around, so we've at least documented the limitation clearly.
    75 
    76 === Root View and URL Reversal ===
    77 
    78 The root view proposal was blocked by the problem of url reversal. A few
    79 possible solutions have been brought up that had some disadvantages, and
    80 nobody of the core team has commented on this.
     36See VersionOneRoadmap for details.
    8137
    8238=== Middleware ordering ===
    8339
    84 We are not treating the middleware hierarchy as a stack, in the sense that if one piece of middleware short-circuits the response construction, we go right to the bottom of the pile before processing the request. We need to decide what behaviour we really want here and record it. Both the referenced tickets have good points in them and since this might slightly change request/response behaviour, it's a pre-1.0 decision if possible.
    85 
    86 === Comments refactor ===
    87 
    88 The comments application needs to be, and will be, ported to use `newforms` prior to Django 1.0. However, Jacob has proposed developing a replacement for it which will be more generic and extensible; this does not need to happen before 1.0, and could simply be added as a new `contrib` app later on, leading to the eventual deprecation and phase-out of the original `contrib.comments` (which could in turn be maintained third-party by anyone who wants to keep it alive). To this end, a Google Summer of Code project is working on the refactor.
     40We are not treating the middleware hierarchy as a stack, in the sense that if
     41one piece of middleware short-circuits the response construction, we go right to
     42the bottom of the pile before processing the request. We need to decide what
     43behaviour we really want here and record it. Both the referenced tickets have
     44good points in them and since this might slightly change request/response
     45behaviour, it's a pre-1.0 decision if possible.
