+Everything else
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+Django :doc:`1.1 <1.1>` and :doc:`1.2 <1.2>` added
+lots of big ticket items to Django, like multiple-database support,
+model validation, and a session-based messages framework. However,
+this focus on big features came at the cost of lots of smaller
+features.
+
+To compensate for this, the focus of the Django 1.3 development
+process has been on adding lots of smaller, long standing feature
+requests. These include:
+
+ * Improved tools for accessing and manipulating the current Site.
+
+ * A :class:`~django.test.client.RequestFactory` for mocking
+ requests in tests.
+
+ * A new test assertion --
+ :meth:`~django.test.client.Client.assertNumQueries` -- making it
+ easier to test the database activity associated with a view.
