Yesterday Anthony Lenton released django-openid-auth version 0.5 which includes support for Django 1.1 through 1.4. It also has quite a number of bug fixes in the release as well. The new version is available from PyPi today. I plan on getting the new version into Raring soon if someone else doesn’t get to it first. I will also work with the Debian maintainer to get it into Debian soon.

Most people are probably aware by now that this Tuesday, 5 March starts the first of the new virtual Ubuntu Developer Summit events.
