Again, a release on the small side. Some new features -- one example is that we now support hook templates per section/type, see #7349 -- and some important bug fixes.

But the most important part of this release is that we have now finally cleaned up the terms used for the taxonomy page kinds. This has made the taxonomy feature in Hugo harder to understand than it needed to be. The old/new values for these are taxonomy => term and taxonomyTerm => taxonomy. We have taken great care to avoid site breakage. See #6911 for more information.

This release represents 21 contributions by 9 contributors to the main Hugo code base.bjorn.erik.pedersen leads the Hugo development with a significant amount of contributions, but also a big shoutout to helfper, moorereason, and onedrawingperday for their ongoing contributions.
And a big thanks to @digitalcraftsman for his relentless work on keeping the themes site in pristine condition and to @davidsneighbour, @coliff and @kaushalmodi for all the great work on the documentation site.

Many have also been busy writing and fixing the documentation in hugoDocs,
which has received 30 contributions by 14 contributors. A special thanks to christianoliff, bjorn.erik.pedersen, patrick, and hello for their work on the documentation site.
