## Django REST framework
We’re finally about ready to roll the 3.10 release. I’m planning to make a release in the first half of next week.
There’s been numerous tweaks, improvements and documentation fixes over the last few weeks.
http3 package is now fully documented at https://www.encode.io/http3/
Work this month has included:
If we can find a good way forward I’d like this to end up as “requests3”, but that’s still an open ended conversation right now.
http3as the test client, in place of
request.state, as a place to store arbitrary per-request state.
databases package is now fully documented at https://www.encode.io/databases/
The status of the various projects under the Encode banner currently looks like:
django-rest-framework- Releasing 3.10, then dealing with any remaining OpenAPI schema issues.
uvicorn- Working towards a 1.0 release.
starlette- Working towards a 1.0 release.
databases- Working towards a 1.0 release.
http3- Working towards a beta release. Determining if this will end up as “requests3” or not.
typesystem- On hold, but to be revisited.
orm- On hold, but to be revisited.
apistar- To be determined. The API documentation generator, and schema-driven client library might fill an important bit of the ecosystem, once REST framework has moved to OpenAPI schema.
I’ve also started to explore how a Starlette-based admin interface might look.
As ever thank you so much to all our sponsors, contributors, and users.
