django CMS 3.6 released
Adding full Django 2.x support to django CMS.
We are very pleased to announce the release of django CMS 3.6, which brings full Django 2.x support to the ecosystem.
For developers: django CMS means a powerful, reliable, consistent tool, that provides a rich a unified interface for multiple content applications.
For users: it's a tool that allows you to think less about the machinery you're operating and more about the work you're doing.
For everyday changes and simple content creation: django CMS offers fast, transparent, in-place editing.
For power users and site manager: it means control over reusable layouts and complex components.

With django CMS Transfer you can export and import plugins from a single page, placeholder or plugins (note that this functionality is limited to simple data - data with relationships such as foreign keys, including media-related data, are not yet supported). django CMS Transfer is particularly useful when moving content from a test to live environment with existing data, or from one site to another:
