  • Shows Eleventy version in standard console output (should help me out a lot when debugging issues 馃憖) #657
  • Relative Includes added in Nunjucks, Liquid (already supported in EJS and Pug) #190
  • Adds support for Passthrough Copy output directory remapping #452 Thank you @MadeByMike!
  • Throws an error if two input templates attempt to write to the same output file (overlapping permalinks) #322 #562

    • e.g. use TOML in your front matter #113

  • JavaScript Templates (*.11ty.js) #622 #627 Thanks @jakearchibald!
    • Throws an error when a JavaScript template returns invalid data format #626
    • When using classes, we now re-use the same instance for data and rendering
    • Add support for JavaScript objects a la exports = { data: {}, render: function() {}
    • Add support for JavaScript Class Fields (Node 12 feature) a la: exports = class { data = {}; render() {} }
