The book is about the development version, which was current at
the time the book was written. See page 4.


Nobody says something about "Book after feature freeze" (or
similar). Instead I get "ignorant statement" and "usable
software".

My conclusion: This book isn't about a stable release and not
about a future stable release. (And even if it was about the last
stable relase, too much has changed and will change until
September 2008. IMHO.)


And by the way: The quote was changed by deleting something on
the same line:

        "June 2008 is a bit too early. Django isn't ready."

                vs.

        "Django isn't ready."
