Does askbot support django 1.4 trunk version?

I am going to try askbot with new django trunk, does anyone run it successfully before?

I found 1.4 and 1.3 version of django are different on how they handle csrf middleware. I tried OSQA and it failed to run in 1.4 and I could only run on 1.3

In addition to everything else, I would recommend looking at the release notes and making a mental note of anything that needs to be checked:

Is Django 1.4 supported at this point?

No, not supported yet. Could work if you migrate settings to 1.4 style, but not tested.

Trying my self issues I have found:

  • Import error in feed (deprecated API since 1.4 info here )
  • Old style database settings not supported anymore, easy to fix in settings file.

After that it seems that there is no problem I made it run and it works ;-)

Made initial commits here

I installed your version of askbot with the commits you mention above, however I am still seeing an error related to feed when using 1.4. Can you provide me with more information on how to resolve this? I am currently working on a project and have a deadline which I need to make for my project manager. I have already fixed the Database settings, which were easy as pie(although pie isn't that easy to make in reality). Here is the error message: Could not import django.contrib.syndication.views.feed. View does not exist in module django.contrib.syndication.views.

I am also getting this same error message trying to use Django 1.4. When I try importing in python interpreter it works fine...any help appreciated

EDIT: found the answer, you need to edit one line in
