Many of you have asked me about a new version of the book for Django 1.11 LTS, however I haven’t been all that committed to a definitive answer.
This has been because I have been considering three options:
- Update the current book for Django 1.11 LTS
- Write a completely different book covering 1.11 LTS
- Go with an offer from a traditional publisher to write a new book.
Option 2 is a great idea, but would mean you would have to wait until next year to get a new book.
Problem with option 3 was I would lose all control over the book – so you would lose the content as a free resource (was never going to happen while I am in control of the site).
So, in the interest of remaining independent, and getting you what you need as soon as possible – I am going with option 1 and, from this week I am starting to update all of the book content on the site.
This also means that there will be a new print book and eBook available later in the year.
Thanks again for your support, and all the best with your programming.
