In late August, we pushed out a major upgrade bringing MuckRock from Django 1.11 to Django 2.1 and from Python 2 to 3. While these updates didn’t offer much new functionality, they were important to help us continue keeping MuckRock secure and giving us an updated, modern platform to build on.
MuckRock’s software is written in Python on top of the Django platform, and we’re doing a major upgrade from Python 2 and Django 1.11 to Python 3 and Django 2.2. It’s one of our most major MuckRock changes in years — and one we hope will have a minimal impact on day-to-day usage.
The last few weeks we’ve been heads down on DocumentCloud work, so no new user-facing features this past week. Want to work on transparency tools of your own? Join us Tuesday nights in Cambridge as we work on our Code for Boston project, GovLens.
Last week, no new features on MuckRock were released, but we did give ONA attendees a first sneak peak at the new DocumentCloud.
