So apparently some folks doing business as “Vyper Logix Corp” are peddling a thing they call “Django 2.0”. I’m not going to link it here since they don’t deserve the Google bump, but if you’re interested you can follow the link in Jannis’ tweet where he mentioned it.

“Django 2.0” is, apparently, built on the Django 0.96.2 codebase, which is rather interesting since that means it could be missing:
- At least one criticial security fix (that’s why we had a Django 0.96.3).
- The refactored Django ORM, including much more flexible query backends and support for model inheritance (queryset-refactor happened after 0.96).
- Full Unicode support (the Unicode branch happened after 0.96).
- Auto-escaping templates, so open wide for cross-site scripting attacks (auto-escaping landed after 0.96).
