I agree with other advices to start with Django 1.7.
Django is very stable and the new functionalities are always introduced
in a very sane way. Also the deprecations are done well, and the
documentation is one of the best I have ever seen for a framework.

If I can go a little further, I say that if you are a Django beginner,
you could follow a very good book:
Test-Driven Development with Python using Django, Selenium and
Javascript. The book's website is http://obeythetestinggoat.com/

Happy Django-ing! :-)
