Hugo 0.33 is the first main Hugo release of the new year, and it is safe to say that @bep has turned off his lazy Christmas mode 😃
This is a full makeover of the layout selection logic with full custom layout and type support (many have asked for this). Also, Hugo now respects the url value in front matter for all page types, including sections. Also, you can now configure uglyURLs per section.
But this release is also a follow-up to the 0.32 release which was all about bundles with resources and powerful image processing. With this release it is now simple to add metadata to your images and other bundle resources.
@bep has added a section with examples of both resources configuration in both YAML and TOML front matter in his test site. The example below shows a sample of how it would look like in YAML:
We have re-implemented and unified the template layout lookup logic. This has made it more powerful and much simpler to understand. We don’t expect any sites to break because of this. We have tested lots of Hugo sites, including the 200 themes.
The indexes type is removed from template lookup. It’s not in the documentation, and is a legacy term inherited from very old Hugo versions.
If you have sub-dirs in your shiny new bundles (e.g. my-bundle/images) and use the *Prefix* methods to find them, we have made an unintended change that affects you. See this issue.
Improve .Site.GetPage for regular translated pages. Before this change it was not possible to say “get me the current language edition of the given content page if possible.” Now you can do that by doing a lookup without any extensions: .Site.GetPage "page" "post/mypost"9409bc0f@bep#4285
