Sentry provides you with a generic interface to view and interact with your error logs. By default, it will catch any exception thrown by Django and store it in a database. With this it allows you to interact and view near real-time information to discover issues and more easily trace them in your application.
As of 1.13.0 the built-in client has been deprecated. A new standalone project (which doesn’t require Django) called Raven will replace it. If you’re just getting started with Sentry, or you want to use a client in a non-Django application, we suggest taking a look at Raven.
Milestones releases are 1.3 or 1.4, and our deprecation policy is to a two version step. For example, a feature will be deprecated in 1.3, and completely removed in 1.4.
