#103 closed defect (fixed)

"Get current version: 1.0" is misleading

Description

The front page link to the download page says "Get current version: 1.0". This is misleading - there is no version 1.0 yet. The text should read "Get development version" or something similar which reinforces the fact that Django has not yet made it to a marked version.

I would also argue that going straight to 1.0 isn't necessarily a good idea. If you look at Rails, they spent months and months rolling through the 0.9 etc releases before everything was considered stable enough for a 1.0. This seems like a smart model to follow.

Fixed. I changed it to "Get current development version."

  • Resolution fixed deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened

This should also be reflected in source:django/trunk/setup.py at line 8, I think, which currently reads:

    version = "1.0.0",

We're going to leave this in the code; that way the download final release will replace any development version you might have installed.
