Django 1.6.2 and Django 1.7a2 released

Posted by Jacob Kaplan-Moss on February 6, 2014

Today we're releasing Django 1.6.2, the latest bugfix release in the 1.6 series, and Django 1.7a2, the second alpha preview of the upcoming 1.7 release.

Django 1.6.2

Django 1.6.2 is the second bugfix release for the Django 1.6 series. Most bug fixes are minor; you can find a complete list in the Django 1.6.2 release notes.

All users are encouraged to upgrade to Django 1.6.2 at your earliest convenience. You can install Django using pip or download Django 1.6.2 from the Django downloads page. As always signed checksums of the package are available.

Django 1.7 alpha 2

Django 1.7 alpha 2 is a preview/testing release that represents the next stage in the 1.7 release cycle. It's an opportunity for you to try out some of the big changes coming in Django 1.7.

We're making a second alpha release for Django 1.7 after we discovered a bad interaction between the new system checks framework and the changes made to app loading. Because these changes made 1.7a1 particularly unstable, we're taking the step of releasing a second alpha.

For full details of what's new in Django 1.7, see the in-development 1.7 release notes.

As with all alpha and beta packages, this is not for production use. But if you'd like to take some of the new features for a spin, or to help find and fix bugs (which should be reported to the issue tracker), you can grab a copy of the alpha package from our downloads page. And as always, signed MD5 and SHA1 checksums of the 1.7 alpha package are available.
