Great news for all Python coders and Django users. New 1.11.4 version available now.


  • Fixed a regression in 1.11.3 on Python 2 where non-ASCII format values for date/time widgets results in an empty value in the widget’s HTML ).
  • Fixed QuerySet.union() and difference() when combining with a queryset raising EmptyResultSet .
  • Fixed a regression in pickling of LazyObject on Python 2 when the wrapped object doesn’t have __reduce__() .
  • Fixed crash in runserver’s autoreload with Python 2 on Windows with non-str environment variables .
  • Corrected Field.has_changed() to return False for disabled form fields: BooleanFieldMultipleChoiceFieldMultiValueFieldFileFieldModelChoiceField, and ModelMultipleChoiceField.
  • Fixed QuerySet.count() for union()difference(), and intersection() queries.
  • Fixed ClearableFileInput rendering as a subwidget of MultiWidget. Custom clearable_file_input.html widget templates will need to adapt for the fact that context values checkbox_namecheckbox_idis_initialinput_text,initial_text, and clear_checkbox_label are now attributes of widget rather than appearing in the top-level context.
  • Fixed queryset crash when using a GenericRelation to a proxy model

Django 2.2 web framework, written in Python and intended for developing web applications, is finally out. Django 2.2 is classified as a long-term issue and will receive updates until April 2022.

Key improvements:

  • Added an HttpRequest.headers object for quick access to HTTP headers sent during a request (for example, request.headers ['User-Agent']).
