About to attempt installing Askbot on a VPS, but want to find out which version of Django will it work with.

I can see that this site is running 0.7.43. Which version of Django worked with it?

1.3.1. I know there is a bug in the setup (remove one middleware from the settings and it will work and we've been delaying a new release due to lack of time. We'll work on this ASAP.

The previous table release is 1.3.3. Will that work?

I am running askbot 0.7.44 with django 1.3.4 and it appears to be working well.

Did you encounter any problems during the installation and setup?

outside of some of my own mistakes no :) I have installed askbot from both the pip install askbot and from the python develop via a virtualenv. In either case you will need to run pip uninstall django after install then run pip install django=1.3.4. If you install via python you can also modify askbot/ REQUIREMENTS to have 1.3.4 as the required django.
