Required Django Version
-----------------------
-This book covers Django 1.1.
+This book covers Django 1.4.
Django's developers maintain backwards compatibility within "major version"
numbers. This commitment means that, if you write an application for Django
-1.1, it will still work for 1.2, 1.3, 1.9 and any other version number that
+1.4, it will still work for 1.5, 1.6, 1.9 and any other version number that
starts with "1."
Once Django hits 2.0, though, your applications might need to be rewritten --
but version 2.0 is a long way away. As a point of reference, it took more than
three years to release version 1.0. (This is very similar to the compatibility
policy taken by the Python language itself: code that was written for Python
-2.0 works on Python 2.6, but not necessarily with Python 3.0.)
+2.0 works on Python 2.7, but not necessarily with Python 3.0.)
-Given that this book covers 1.1, it should serve you well for some time.
+Given that this book covers 1.4, it should serve you well for some time.
