Description

While updating my project to 1.11 I ran into an issue with update_contenttypes method.

from django.contrib.contenttypes.management import update_contenttypes
ImportError: cannot import name 'update_contenttypes'

The release notes don't have any mention of this method being removed (or renamed to create_contenttypes).

Would probably be good to have a mention about this here: https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.11/releases/1.11/#django-contrib-contenttypes

That function isn't a documented, public API, hence it's subject to change without a mention in the release notes.

The relevant commit is 6a2af01452966d10155b720f4f5e7b09c7e3e419.
