django CMS 3.5.3 release candidate 1

Daniele Procida

Nov. 12, 2018


A Release Candidate for django CMS 3.5 is now available.

django CMS 3.5.3 is on track for release later this month, and will be followed soon afterwards by django CMS 3.6. We are issuing a Release Candidate of version 3.5.3 to allow our community of users to assess it before the final release.

This is mainly a bug-fix release that addresses minor issues. It is expected to be the last version in the 3.5.x branch, and the last to support versions of Django prior to 1.11.

Take version the 3.5.3 release candidate for a test-drive

This Release Candidate is your opportunity to take the new version for a test-drive before its official release. You can install it on your own system or on the Divio Cloud.

Divio Cloud installation

The easiest way to try out django CMS is by creating a new Divio Cloud project, which takes only a couple of minutes.

In the Divio Cloud Control Panel, create a new django CMS project.

Once it has been created, configure its Addons. You will need to specify:

  • django CMS: select version or newer from the Beta channel of Aldryn django CMS

Then you can Deploy the project.

Using the django CMS Installer on your own machine

See our installation guide in the tutorial. However, make sure that you:

  • have installed the latest version of django CMS Installer (at least version 0.9.8)
  • install django CMS 3.5.2: djangocms --cms-version=stable mysite
  • once installed, use pip to update the version to the 3.5.3 release candidate: pip install django-cms==3.5.3rc1

The user name and password will both be admin.
