Log Message:
Changes 1.5:
Django 1.5 introduces support for a configurable User model. The basic Django 
User model is still around, of course, but now there's first-class support for 
specifying your own model and having Django's auth system make use of it.

Django 1.5 is the first Django release with support for Python 3 (specifically, 
Python 3.2 and newer). Python 3 support is still considered experimental -- 
largely because it hasn't received as much real-world testing as we'd like -- 
but a Python 3 porting guide is available if you'd like to give it a try, and 
we will be considering Python 3 compatibility bugs to be blockers for future 

Of course, if you're still comfortable with Python 2, Django continues to offer 
support for that just as we always have -- though note that the minimum version 
for Django 1.5 is Python 2.6.5, and Python 2.7.3 or newer is strongly 

Django's documentation has also gotten some pretty significant work; the main 
documentation page has had a bit of a facelift to make things easier to find, 
the existing tutorial got some refurbishing, and several new tutorials -- 
including some more advanced topics, like writing an app you can reuse in 
multiple projects -- have been added. And the documentation for class-based 
views has been significantly expanded, which should make this feature a lot 
easier to understand and take advantage of.
