Re: Django 1.5 - release date

Does anyone know when Django 1.5 is going to be released as a stable version? If I want to start developing a production web site, should I write it on Django 1.4 or is it already ok to implement it on Django 1.5?

It's difficult to give an exact date for the release of Django 1.5. We've put out 2 beta releases, which means there are no more features to be added; and the list of release blocking bugs is down to single figures [1]. 

If I were to guess, I'd say we're less than a month from the final release of 1.5. However, this is all dependent on how many new release blocking bugs are discovered between now and then, and the resources that the community and the core team can devote to getting the release out the door.

Whether that suits your own development schedule is up to you. 

The good news is that unless you're planning to use a new feature from 1.5 (e.g., pluggable User models), it shouldn't really matter whether you start developing using Django 1.4 or Django 1.5. Django has a strict backwards compatibility policy, so the migration process from 1.4 to 1.5 should be very smooth.
