Django 1.9 release candidate 1 released

Posted by Tim Graham on November 16, 2015

As part of the Django 1.9 release process, today we've released Django 1.9 release candidate 1, a preview/testing package that represents the third stage in the 1.9 release cycle and an opportunity for you to try out the changes coming in Django 1.9.

Django 1.9 has a myriad of goodies which you can read about in the in-development 1.9 release notes.

This release marks the string freeze and the call for translators to submit translations. Provided no major bugs are discovered that can't be solved in the next two weeks, 1.9 final will be issued on or around December 1. Any delays will be communicated on the django-developers mailing list thread.

As with all prerelease 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 release candidate package from our downloads page or on PyPI. As always, signed MD5, SHA1, and SHA256 checksums of the release are available.

The PGP key ID used for this release is Tim Graham: 1E8ABDC773EDE252.
