We’ve just released Django Object Permissions 1.0. Object Permissions or row level permissions, allow you to grant users permissions on a specific model instance. This feature is new in Django 1.2 and required by all authentication back-ends by Django 1.4. At the OSL we’re building apps that allow our clients to self service, instead of waiting for an official implementation we rolled our own.

Touchscreen is a platform building interactive kiosk displays. We built it to show off our data center, which houses some of the worlds most important open source projects, and for status displays within our network operations center. We have plans to build a status dashboard for our development team as well.
Pydra is a distributed computing or cluster computing framework for Python. Pydra seeks to provide a solution that is easier to deploy, manage, use than existing projects. This is on top of providing standard features such as fault tolerance.
Pydra was born out of a necessity. Other projects being developed by the Open Source Lab required a large amount of processing. Rather than implementing parallelism specific to our application, we chose to build a generic distributed computing framework with the features missing in other solutions. We see Pydra as a useful tool for future projects at the lab.
