We have added Replacements to the Module Configuration. This should enable a much simpler developer workflow, simpler to set up preview sites for your remote theme etc, as you now can do env HUGO_MODULE_REPLACEMENTS="github.com/bep/myprettytheme -> ../.." hugo and similar.
The module Path for local modules can now be absolute for imports defined in the project.
This release represents 38 contributions by 11 contributors to the main Hugo code base. @bep leads the Hugo development with a significant amount of contributions, but also a big shoutout to @moorereason, and @anthonyfok for their ongoing contributions.
