Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design.

Feature releases (A.B, A.B+1, etc.) will happen roughly every eight months. These releases will contain new features, improvements to existing features, and such.

Patch releases (A.B.C, etc.) will be issued as needed, to fix bugs and/or security issues. These releases will be 100% compatible with the associated feature release, unless this is impossible for security reasons or to prevent data loss. So the answer to “should I upgrade to the latest patch release?” will always be “yes.”

Certain feature releases will be designated as long-term support (LTS) releases. These releases will get security and data loss fixes applied for a guaranteed period of time, typically three years.

See the supported versions policy for detailed guidelines about what fixes will be backported.

More information is available on the Django website.

You should be running one of the supported release numbers listed above in the rightmost column.

You can check the version that you are currently using by running:

python -c "import django; print(django.get_version())"
