Welcome to Django 1.0.2!
This is the second “bugfix” release in the Django 1.0 series, improving the stability and performance of the Django 1.0 codebase. As such, Django 1.0.2 contains no new features (and, pursuant to our compatibility policy, maintains backwards compatibility with Django 1.0.0), but does contain a number of fixes and other improvements. Django 1.0.2 is a recommended upgrade for any development or deployment currently using or targeting Django 1.0.

Django 1.0.2 contains updated packaging scripts, and the release package contains the directories omitted from Django 1.0.1. As such, this release contains all of the fixes and improvements from Django 1.0.1; see the Django 1.0.1 release notes for details.
