Two years ago today, we announced our Pinax distribution plan. Since Pinax is no one app or project but an ecosystem of applications that work together to make building new web applications fast and fun, having a distribution allows us to provide a known working set of compatible versions.
For years we have supported the same import ordering rules in our CONTRIBUTING.md files as part of the Pinax coding style. One feature of this was separate sections for both django and django.contrib. Time has come for that to change.
As it turns out managing templates in an external app for dozens of different apps across 11 different projects is quite a tedious process. We need something simpler. After all, necessity is the mother of invention.
Since 2011, we’ve been packaging templates for Pinax apps inside pinax-theme-bootstrap. Over the
years we’ve moved more and more app templates that used to be bundled with the app into the theme.
Unfortunately, we are too coupled to specific Bootstrap versions.
Today we are excited to announce django-user-accounts
v2.0.0, with bug fixes, enhancements, and support for Django 1.10! Since this is a major version
release you can expect a few backward incompatibilities as well as exciting enhancements such as
automatic login after confirming email address and (optional) automatic password expiration.
