  • PERFORMANCE PERFORMANCE PERFORMANCE Ruthlessly eliminates unnecessary renders for all template languages, build times are improved in v0.8.0. Median benchmark build time improved by up to 45% (Nunjucks) and by 25% (Liquid). Send a tweet to @鈥媏leven_ty to let us know if and how much your build times changed!
  • Adds new directory option for a layouts directory separate from includes. This optional feature was our top requested enhancement. Documentation, fixes #137
  • More robust path joining (handles more edge cases in input/output/includes/data directories) PR from the amazing @kleinfreund! Fixes #376 #337
  • Adds eleventyExcludeFromCollections option to exclude a piece of content from all collections (think templated .htaccess or sitemap.xml files that you don鈥檛 want in collections.all). Documentation, fixes #423
  • Adds addAllPagesToCollections option to pagination. Without this feature, using pagination with tags only adds your first page template to collections. Documentation. Read more discussion at #253
