3.6

A Release Candidate 2 for django CMS 3.6 is now available.

django CMS 3.6 is on track for release later this month. This is the second Release Candidate for version 3.6, to allow our community of users to assess it before the final release.

In addition to the other updates listed below, this RC2 version addresses bugs affecting menu node links when pages are created or updated.

django CMS 3.6:

  • introduces support for Django 2.0 and 2.1
  • drops support for Django 1.8, 1.9 and 1.10

Take the 3.6 Release Candidate 2 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 3.6.0.5 or newer from the Alpha channel of Aldryn django CMS

Then you can Deploy the project.

Install django CMS using pip

Run pip install django-cms==3.6rc2. You should find that updating django CMS to 3.6 in a project already running 3.5.x requires no other changes, as long as you're using compatible versions of Python and Django, and have stopped using deprecated APIs.

Please install the RC2 from the develop branch as we're preparing the final release.

What's new

Please see the django CMS 3.6 release notes for more information about what's new and how to upgrade.
