Django 1.2 will most likely not implement logging - they're now in feature freeze for big features. See Russ Magee's post:


They're waiting for a Python decision and (from Russ Magee's post) seem to be in favour of the changes proposed in PEP 391. If we get these changes into Python soon, then Django 1.3 may be able to make use of them in its logging (which encompasses not just configuring Django logging in a settings.py, but also using logging internally throughout Django where it makes sense to do so).

Assuming PEP 391 gets the nod, then after implementing the changes into Python, I plan to work with the Django community to get improved logging support in Django for 1.3.
