Fedora 22 will contain Django-1.8

One of the new features in upcoming Fedora 22 will be Django-1.8. Django project released its most recent version earlier this month, and it's going to be a long term supported version after Django-1.4 became a bit ancient nowadays. Fedora had release 1.6 in which is now deprecated by Django upstream.

A few packages required patches to support Django-1.8 though:

  • python-django-openstack-auth
  • python-django-compressor
  • python-django-nose
  • python-django-horizon

Of course, they were fixed and included already in Fedora 22.
