Description

Hello! I am just starting down the path of learning Django and it looks way exciting. I have the book, "The Definitive Guide to django: web development done right" and I found it online as well. In the very first part of Chapter 1 is a link in the following paragraph:

Required Django Version

This book covers Django 1.4.

Django’s developers maintain backwards compatibility as much as possible, but occasionally introduce some backwards incompatible changes. The changes in each release are always covered in the release notes, which you can find here: https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/releases/1.X

This is the link that appears to be broken:
https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/releases/1.X

Anyway, I thought I'd mention it and what I really wanted to know is, if this material is still relevant given the newer 1.5.x releases. I'm sure this is not the forum for that, but thought I'd mention it anyway.

Thank you all!

Hi,

The book you're referring to is not (as far as I know) affiliated with the Django framework.

This tracker is for issues regarding the Django framework (and the djangoproject.com website).

You should get in touch with the author of the book instead.

Regarding your problem, I'm guessing you're supposed to replace the X in the URL with the version of django that you want:
https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/releases/1.5/ works fine.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
