django CMS 3.4.2 release candidate 1

Daniele Procida

Jan. 10, 2017


The first release candidate of django CMS 3.4.2 is now available, containing some important new features and numerous bug fixes.

What’s new

Highlights for this release are the return of the Revert to live functionality, and support for Django 1.10.

The full list of improvements, bug fixes, deprecations and other changes is described in the official release notes.

Revert to live

Revert to live is the first step in fully re-implementing revision management on a new basis.

Revision management is no longer part of the django CMS core, but handled by a pluggable addon application. This is in keeping with the django CMS philosophy of maintaining only core CMS functionality as part of the package itself.  

A new application, django CMS History, will contain the revision management functionality - at first, a basic undo/redo feature for CMS content.

The application will continue to be developed, and new functionality and improvements will be introduced in future releases.


The new version of django CMS has been thoroughly tested, but as always we welcome feedback from our users. To test the release candidate in an existing project, you can run

pip install git+git://[email protected]/3.4.x#egg=django-cms

Please file any bug reports on GitHub, and give us any other feedback on our django CMS developers email list.
