So far, Django is still quite nice. I had some configuration problems (it didn’t help that I was also trying to setup a new OS X box at the same time), but nothing that a little perseverance and the kind help of people on the #django channel couldn’t fix.
Django is still clearly evolving quickly (which I like), with some fascinating discussions on the mailing list as to the proper role for AJAX-style toolkits in a tool like Django. Django doesn’t (yet?) have the insane buzz that Ruby on Rails has, but the fact that I know Python (and the Python libraries) makes me feel like I will be productive much faster w/ Django than with Rails. I’ll probably poke at Rails periodically as well, to see how that’s evolving.
Other tools I had good interactions with today: subversion, trac. Apart from the fact that the Powerbook keyboards bboouunnnceee a lot on me, I’m having a Good Computer Day.
