Django 1.6 release candidate available

As part of the Django 1.6 release process, today we've released Django 1.6 release candidate 1, a preview/testing package for Django 1.6. As with all pre-release packages, this is not for production use, but if you'd like to try out some of the new goodies coming in 1.6, or if you'd like to pitch in and help us fix bugs before the final 1.6 release, feel free to grab a copy and give it a spin.

In particular, we ask users of this release candidate to watch for and report any major bugs they encounter; if no release-blocking bugs are reported, Django 1.6 will be released in approximately two weeks.

You can get a copy of the 1.6 release candidate from our downloads page, and we recommend you read the release notes.

Django 1.6 requires Python 2.6.5; Python 3.x releases, starting with Python 3.2, are also supported. For more information on Python 3 support, see the notes on porting to and using Python 3.
