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.
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.
After releasing Pinax 16.04 in April this year, we are happy to announce that we released Pinax 16.07, our second Pinax distribution, last month. Pinax distributions are a simultaneous snapshot of project, app and theme releases, that have been tested together.
From the earliest days of Pinax, it has been our goal to make it easier and
faster to launch new web applications. Before Django adopted the project template,
Pinax had a collection of project templates we called starter projects.
