Ruby

A dynamic, open source programming language with a focus on simplicity and productivity.
 

Good news for all Jekyll fans. Version 3.5.0 has been released.

New features:

  • Jekyll now uses the latest 4th version of Liquid. It provides whitespace control, new filters concat and compact, loop performance improvements and many small fixes.
  • Themes can specify runtime dependencies. This makes it plugins usage for team writers more easier. 
  • Pages, posts, and other documents can now access layout variables via {{ layout }}.
  • The gems key in the _config.yml is now plugins. This is backwards-compatible, as Jekyll will upgrade gems to plugins if you use the former.
  • Filters like sort now allow you to sort based on a subvalue, e.g. {% assign sorted = site.posts | sort: "image.alt_text" %}.
  • You can now create tab-separated data files.
  • Using layout: none will now produce a file with no layout. Equivalent to layout: null, with the exception that none is a truthy value and won’t be overwritten by front matter defaults.
  • Gemfile from the site manifest is automatically excluded when compiling the site. No more _site/Gemfile.
  • Abbreviated post dates ignore bug fixed, e.g. _posts/2016-4-4-april-fourth.md.

All fixes and features list.

Developers ask community to test this release and report any bugs.
