Hugo 0.77.0 is a small, but useful release. Some notable updates are:

  • time.AsTime accepts an optional location as second parameter, allowing timezone aware printing of dates.
  • You can now build with hugo install -tags nodeploy if you don’t need the hugo deploy feature.
  • Remote getJSON errors can now be ignored by adding ignoreErrors = ["error-remote-getjson"] to your site config.

There are also several useful Hugo Modules enhancements:

  • 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.
