Django 1.4.9 and 1.5.5 released
Tonight we've issued two releases -- Django 1.4.9 and Django 1.5.5 -- which act as minor bugfix packages. Some of the bugs fixed in these releases are security-related, but these are not security releases; primarily, these releases improve our PBKDF2 hasher to better deal with the denial-of-service issue disclosed last month, and fix other non-security-related bugs.
Full release notes are available:
The release packages themselves, along with their checksums, can be obtained from our downloads page.
