 Begin by adding ``registration`` to the ``INSTALLED_APPS`` setting of
-your project, and specifying two additional settings:
+your project, and specifying one additional setting:
     This is the number of days users will have to activate their
     that period, the account will remain permanently inactive and may
     be deleted by maintenance scripts provided in django-registration.
-    This tells django-registration which backend to use for user
-    registration. Set this to
-    ``"registration.backends.default.DefaultBackend"``.
 For example, you might have something like the following in your
 Django settings file::
     ACCOUNT_ACTIVATION_DAYS = 7 # One-week activation window; you may, of course, use a different value.
-    REGISTRATION_BACKEND = "registration.backends.default.DefaultBackend"
 Once you've done this, run `` syncdb`` to install the model
 used by the default setup.
 To upgrade from a previous version of django-registration, you will
-need to make two changes, both to project configuration.
-First, add the setting ``REGISTRATION_BACKEND``, and set it to
-``"registration.backends.default.DefaultBackend"``. This is required
-to support the primary new feature in 0.8 (pluggable backends
-implementing different registration schemes), and will enable a
-backend which provides behavior identical to previous releases of
-Then, if you were using the default ``URLConf`` provided in previous
-versions, you will instead need to use the ``URLConf`` provided by the
-default backend in 0.8, which is located at
-``registration.backends.default.urls``. So, for example, if you
-previously had this in your ``URLConf``::
