I have this line in my

from django.views.generic.simple import redirect_to

Django breaks with: "No module named simple".

I guess this means that django.views.generic.simple is not available in 1.5 anymore. This is a backward incompatible change. But this is not mentioned in in the release notes.

Here is the traceback:

It's mentioned in the Deprecation Timeline: under 1.5 ("The function-based generic view modules will be removed in favor of their class-based equivalents") as well as the 1.3 release notes when these functions were originally deprecated:
