Since Python 2.7 is already available on all WebFaction servers, when will a version of Django that runs on Python 2.7 (or anything later) become available in the Control Panel?

In the meantime, how can I "point" Django to run on 2.7 instead of 2.6.5 (the latest version currently available in the Control Panel)?

We do not have an ETA for this deployment. The issue is you can not just point it to use the new python version since some of the apache .so files were built to use 2.6. You would have to re-build apache. Also you may have to change the syntax of some of your code to work in 2.7.

+1 for this -- apparently AUTH TLS mode in ftplib:

http://docs.python.org/library/ftplib.html

is "new in 2.7" and i need that last week -- when my "client" switched their ftp server over.

Python 2.7 introduces new syntax, but all Python 2.6 programs are syntactically valid in 2.7. It's possible, but very unlikely, something has changed in the standard library in 2.7 that breaks a 2.6 program. See http://docs.python.org/whatsnew/2.7.html.
