#7661 closed (invalid)

Newforms docs give a misleading migration plan - implies that there will be a 0.97 release.

From the Migration Plan in Newforms docs:

In the next Django release (0.97), we will move the current django.newforms to django.forms. This will be a backwards-incompatible change, and anybody who is still using the old version of django.forms at that time will need to change their import statements, as described in the previous bullet.

We will remove django.oldforms in the release after the next Django release — either 0.98 or 1.0, whichever comes first.

This may be immensely confusing to those not following what's going on with Django's release schedule.

Because newforms will entirely replace oldforms within the next few weeks, I'm going to close this as "why bother". #7741 even describes the ongoing plan for doing so, and removing the references this ticket talks about is one of them.
