+==========================
+Django 1.5.1 release notes
+==========================
+
+*March 28, 2013*
+
+This is Django 1.5.1, a bugfix release for Django 1.5. It's completely backwards
+compatible with Django 1.5, but includes a handful of fixes.
+
+The biggest fix is for a memory leak introduced in Django 1.5. Under certain
+circumstances, repeated iteration over querysets could leak memory - sometimes
+quite a bit of it. If you'd like more information, the details are in
+`our ticket tracker`__ (and in `a related issue`__ in Python itself).
+
+__ https://code.djangoproject.com/ticket/19895
+__ http://bugs.python.org/issue17468
+
+If you've noticed memory problems under Django 1.5, upgrading to 1.5.1 should
+fix those issues.
+
+Django 1.5.1 also includes a couple smaller fixes:
+
+* Module-level warnings emitted during tests are no longer silently hidden
+ (`#18985`__).
+* Prevented filtering on password hashes in the user admin (`#20078`__).
