BitNami DjangoStack: Updates

We have recently released a new version of the BitNami DjangoStack. This version includes a major update in the MySQL database version to MySQL 5.5. Another improvement for the Linux and Mac OS X installers (also VMs and Linux AMIs) is that the Python Imaging Library is now included. We found that users were finding issues when trying to install PIL on top of the BitNami DjangoStack on Unix distributions especially in Mac OS X. In our aim to simplify the development and deployment of Django applications by providing a ready-to-run environment, we have now included this library in the BitNami DjangoStack.
