That's a bit unfair. Maybe the guy was stung by previous experiences
with books and certain other frameworks. It seems to me that the
Django people have been quite cautious with the APIs and with their
own book, but it isn't as if nothing has been changing with respect to
the APIs and the preferred ways of doing things in Django.

And I have to add that books which refer the reader to various Web
sites in order to find out the status of the code, qualifying the
prose with "by the time you read this", don't give a great impression.
I can't say that the book referenced here does that, although short of
a 1.0 release, I find it unlikely that the author could avoid it.
