Which django version should i use

I just started learning Django and the latest available version is 3.1 I know I should start with the latest version but I am stuck at should I wait for the 3.2 LTS or just go with 3.1 The Django 3.1 version support will end in April 2021 which is almost 4 months from now. I guess choosing an old LTS version will not be a good idea. Please let me know which one to choose and why?

You can start with the latest available version at the moment. LTS versions have extended support that makes it less risky to use that tool. Let's take a look at the Django releases Django versions! Here you can see that version 3.1 is the latest and has extended support till the year-end of 2021. That's enough time for you to go with this version. However, one thing to keep in mind that each new version basically implements a core level thing that increases the framework performance and handles previous security issues. Most of the changes are nonbreaking so go with it.
