About Keeping Django up to Date

Django versions are numbered with MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH syntax, for example given Django 4.2.14, the 4 is the MAJOR, the 2 is the MINOR, and the 14 is the PATCH version.

In production, always upgrade your Django to the latest PATCH version. Only so you can ensure that you have the latest backwards-compatible security and stability fixes.

Also when you have long-term projects with lots of dependencies, it's recommendable to use the LTS (long-term support) versions of Django, such as 3.2.*, 4.2.*, 5.2.*, etc.
