installing django 1.5(development version) in virtualenv

I am trying to start developing a web apps using django 1.5 but I can't figure out how to install the django 1.5 in the virtualenv because django 1.5 is still a development version.

I've tried installing it using easy_install and pip but all I get is django 1.4 because it is the official version.

Can anybody help me with this?


Directly from the github repository.

pip install git+git://

Django 1.5 was released!. To install it use:

pip install django

To install the latest development version without git, on your own risk use:

pip install

Django 1.5 Release Candidate 2 (RC2) was released, and it can be installed using pip without installing git:

pip install

Now that the github version is 1.6 'alpha' (atm), to get the 1.5.x branch, you can:

pip install --upgrade git+

Edit: You may need to pip uninstall Django to remove previous versions.

Here is instruction how you can grab the code from git. After that go to your virtual env

source ~/path/to/venv/bin/activate

and go to downloaded sources and run

python install

and now you have installed latest development Django.

I think this link could be useful:

Option 1.

You can install the latest official version of Django:

pip install Django==1.6.3

Option 2.

You can try out the beta:

pip install

Option 3.

You can get the latest development version:

git clone

Why is a mysqldump with single-transaction more consistent than a one without?

I have gone through the manual and it was mentioned that every transaction will add a BEGIN statement before it starts taking the dump. Can someone elaborate this in a more understandable manner?
