Fixed with this commit just removed some code specific to Django 1.3 and some code that works only in Python 2.7.

Thanks Evgeny, and thank your for an awesome product. We're been playing with it some days.

I have deployed the latest version on apache and do not get an error like this.

Maybe you forgot to run migrations?

edit: @mether thank you! now I am re-testing with lower versions of Django and will ask developers to use the lowest version of django we aim to support. I think at the moment it is 1.1, but this is debatable.

Apparently a Django 1.2x compatibility issue. Details sent to you on email.

We are running Django 1,2.6 in our infrastructure now and that is unlikely to change anytime soon. It is crucial for us that new releases of Askbot continue to be compatible with the base components we have. We will continue to push for more features via ideas or patches since we have a lot of requests Thanks.
