Django continues his path towards NoSQL:
Rob Vaterlaus has started working on a Cassandra backend and Alberto Paro is working on an ElasticSearch backend for Django-nonrel.
The Cassandra backend is still experimental and lacks support for ListField (from djangotoolbox.fields), but overall it already looks very very interesting. This backend comes with experimental secondary indexes support for Cassandra and requires a recent Cassandra 0.7 build.
Currently supported: App Engine and MongoDB.
