Django Upgrade?

Hi DreamHost Staff and Customers,

I’m new here and before I dive into django too deeply I see from the wiki that the default django version is 1.2.3 from February 2012. I was wondering if there was any chance that this will be upgraded and if there is indeed any desire from customers for the default version to be upgraded.

I really don’t want to get too deep into a 2 year old version of django if I don’t have to, so I would have a desire before getting stuck in for django to be as up to date as possible.

I tried the whole installing django specifically for my site but it hasn’t gone as smoothly as my experiences with the default django (with which I worked through the tutorial, navigating my way around some awkward moments).

Just wondering what people’s thoughts are with this and also to reiterate state that I personally would prefer an upgrade.

Thanks for your input,
