The well-known Python-based web framework, Django, has delivered its first preview release for version 1.3.  This next version will allow developers to use a class as a view and will have framework-level support for Python's logging module.  More features are discussed on the Django project docs.

Lua Integration Into CPython
A new package for Python called " Lupa" allows the LuaJIT2 runtime to be integrated with CPython, the most common Python runtime.  The wrapper is a partial rewrite of LunaticPython with extra features such as coroutine support.  LuaJIT complements Python well because it compiles Python code into very efficient machine code.
