When will Django-1.6 be supported?

Currently, I struggle to find a current list of dependencies for askbot.

For development (which I'd expect to be further developed than stable)

lists django-1.4.2 as a hard requirement. This version contains quite a few serious security issues, and I'd expect this version not to be supported upstream any more, since Django-1.6 was released back in November 2013.

Do you have any plan for askbot to support django-1.6?

You can use Django 1.5.5 without errors, here's the output of runserver

Django version 1.5.5, using settings 'askbot.settings'
Development server is running at
Quit the server with CONTROL-C.

but there are some deprecations warnings that must be resolved before upgrading to 1.6.:

  • django.conf.urls.defaults is deprecated; use django.conf.urls instead
  • django.utils.simplejson is deprecated; use json instead
  • The 'execute_manager' function is deprecated, you likely need to update your ''; please see the Django 1.4 release notes (
  • ...

I send a pull request to that effect: (use django.conf.urls instead of django.conf.urls.defaults).

I guess I'm on Django 1.5 and have no problems. Haven't tried anything newer though.

>>> import django
>>> django.VERSION
(1, 5, 0, 'final', 0)
