Django 2.1 alpha 1 is now available. It represents the first stage in the 2.1 release cycle and is an opportunity for you to try out the changes coming in Django 2.1.
Django 2.1 has a smorgasbord of new features which you can read about in
the in-development 2.1 release notes.
This alpha milestone marks the feature freeze. The current
release schedule calls for a beta release in about a month and a release
candidate about a month from then. We’ll only be able to keep this schedule
if we get early and often testing from the community. Updates on the release
schedule are available on the django-developers mailing list.
As with all alpha and beta packages, this is not for production use. But
if you’d like to take some of the new features for a spin, or to help find and
fix bugs (which should be reported to the issue tracker), you can grab a
copy of the alpha package from our downloads page or on PyPI.
