Hi guys, I’m keen to hear if there are currently any plans to bump Django to the current stable or LTS release?
Mainly coming from a security perspective here – Django 1.6.x has been out of extended support for close to 2 years and is not receiving security fixes anymore. Considering that Sentry can hold sensitive information about servers and application environments, I feel slightly uncomfortable running a production instance on an unsupported web framework.
So my question, is there some sort of roadmap for upgrading Django in the near future? Not an immediate feature request, but I’d like to hear how you guys feel about this. I know upgrading Django from 1.6 & South can be painful, but I haven’t come across any major breaking changes since 1.8 LTS (which is still in support until April 2018). I feel like the longer Sentry depends on Django 1.6, the harder it will get to keep up with security patches in the future?
