Preparing for Django 1 release

To all the django fans I am pretty sure that you're all excited on what is taking place in the development Django as it fastly approaches to version 1. When Django 1.0 Alpha was release I kept myself from upgrading and decided wait for the final version 1 to arrive fearing that it might break something. I did the same thing when the Alpha 2 was release, but new features are just too awesome to ingore and finally I decided to upgrade. As expected something went wrong and having no idea what's going on I quickly turn to Django IRC channel for some help. Nice rozwell tell me why (at 18:58) and present this page to me which is a list of back imcompatible changes that's going to help us prepare for Django 1.

This page is helpful and I am presenting to all isn't aware to it. Get set for Django 1!

Formsets: Django Forms new features

As fas as I can remember, I don't see this feature mention on the up coming Django 1 release. So I was very surprise and happy to see this new feature when I browse thru the forms documentation. Formset is a layer of abstraction to working with multiple forms on the same page. It can be best compared to a data grid. Formset makes things easier for you when dealing with multiple forms such as validating, ordering, and deleting.

I'll be updating my code and see how much it helps.
