Django 2.1 release candidate 1 is the final opportunity for you to try out the smorgasbord of new
features before Django 2.1 is released.
The release candidate stage marks the string freeze and the call for translators to submit translations. Provided no major bugs are discovered that can’t be solved in the next two weeks, Django 2.1 will be released on or around August 1. Any delays will be communicated on the django-developers mailing list thread.
The PGP key ID used for this release is Tim Graham: 1E8ABDC773EDE252.
