Updating Django

django

#1

Hello.
When will Django framework be updated? Version 1.9 is pretty old and not officially supported anymore. There is Django 2.0 exists already.
I tried update it by myself in my workspace using virtualenv etc. but with no success.
I’m about to start a new project and it would be great to work with up-to-date software.

You can do it like this:

virtualenv venv
source venv/bin/activate
pip install -U django

This will install latest stable version of Django.

If you want latest development version, you can install it like this:

virtualenv -ppython3 venv
source venv/bin/activate
pip install -e git+http://github.com/django/django#egg=Django

But be aware that it is not ready for production yet.
