Django 1.5 released

Posted by James Bennett on February 26, 2013

It's here!

After quite a lot of work, today we're proud to announce the release of Django 1.5. As always, the release notes cover all the good stuff in detail, but since this is a pretty big release let's take a look at some of the highlights:

And that's just the tip of the iceberg; Django 1.5 has a whole lot more to offer, all of which is covered in the release notes.

Meanwhile, Django 1.5 itself is available from our downloads page (see also: checksums for package verification), or from your favorite Python package manager.

Finally, as always we want to point out that we couldn't do this without the help of huge numbers of people from around the world; the Django community grows every day, and the number of people who've contributed to Django grows with every release. You're both the reason we do this, and the reason why we can do this, so give yourselves all a big pat on the back.
