Description

Suggestion from BarCamp London. The front page of http://www.djangoproject.com/ links to the Django Book and the download for the latest release - but if you try to follow the book using the latest release you'll run in to all kinds of problems.

But you are warned at http://www.djangobook.com/:

Note: if you want to follow along with the examples, you'll need to install the latest development version of Django (not version 0.95, which is the latest official release).

That warning obviously wasn't enough to save the person I talked to from a lot of confusion. I'm not sure how the warning could be made more prominent.

Replying to Simon Willison:

I'm not sure how the warning could be made more prominent.

Yeah, it is already bold. But also this issue will be fixed when 0.96 is released, which should be coming shortly after PyCon.
