How to upgrade to 3.9.0#
We assume you are upgrading from django CMS 3.8.
Please make sure that your current database is consistent and in a healthy state, and make a copy of the database before proceeding further.
Check your settings of CMS_LANGUAGES (if used), as it was ignored by default in preceding versions. For more information, please see: https://github.com/django-cms/django-cms/pull/6795

Check custom code and third-party applications for use of deprecated or removed functionality or APIs (see above). Some third-party components may need to be updated.
