Django Roadmap

I haven't been very good at keeping up with blogging. I hope to do better this year.

In June last year (2015), the Django project released their roadmap of development for the next couple of years. It includes details such as when the next releases are due and the new versioning scheme with clearer long term support (LTS) version numbers. One of the most surprising things to me was the plan to not support Python 2 after version 1.11 (released about April 2017). It sends such a clear message about the future of Python. The basis for that descision is that 1.11 will be the first Django LTS version that support will finish after that of Python 2.7.

It's great to see such a clear and useful roadmap, helped by the fact that there is a clear version for the future of Django.
