New version of Jekyll was shipped. This time v.3.8.0 was presented with optimizations, improvements, some new features and a couple of bug-fixes.

New features:

  • Detect non-existent variables and filters specified in a template by enabling strict_variables and strict_filters under the liquid key in your config file.
  • Allow date filters to output ordinal days.
  • jekyll doctor now warns you if you have opted for custom collections_dir but placed posts directory outside that directory.

Bug fixes:

  • handle Liquid blocks intelligently in excerpts
  • a few bugs from collections_dir from v3.7 got frixed.
