Until fairly recently, Django itself lacked support for Unicode in URL slugs. This was added in Django 1.9.

Although Django now offers this support, we do not yet provide it in django CMS as we need to continue to offer compatibility with older versions of Django that do not have this Unicode support.

We are looking into ways around this. See the django CMS issue tracker on GitHub: django CMS should support Unicode slugs.
