Improvements thus far include:
+* Applications can run code at startup, before Django does anything else, with
+ the :meth:`~django.apps.AppConfig.setup` method of their configuration.
+
* It is possible to omit ``models.py`` entirely if an application doesn't
have any models.
* The name of applications can be customized in the admin with the
:attr:`~django.apps.AppConfig.verbose_name` of application configurations.
+* Django imports all application configurations and models as soon as it
+ starts, through a deterministic and straightforward process. This should
+ make it easier to diagnose import issues such as import loops.
