This app started as django-stripe-payments on August 18, 2012 and was written by Eldarion from their direct experience at building SaaS and eCommerce applications. It was announced as a reusable app on October 23, 2012.

Exactly 2 years and one day later, on October 24, 2014, Eldarion donated django-stripe-payments to Pinax.

On November 12, 2015 after many months of design considerations and procrastinating, the Pinax team did a major refactor bring test coverage up to 100%, adding lots of docs, and re-architecting into a service layer for a better API and easier maintenance and testability.

After nearly 200 commits, 13 merged pull requests, and 45 closed issues, pinax-stripe was to publish on December 5, 2015. Though it's a rename, we are kept the same semantic versioning from django-stripe-payments making this release the 3.0.0 release.
