date: 2019-10-21 title: "Hugo 0.59.0" description: "Set image target format and background color, and more ..." categories: ["Releases"]

The timing of this release is motivated by getting the copies of the docs repositories in synch, now fully "Hugo Modularized". But it also comes with some very nice additions:

It is now possible to set the target format and the background fill color when processing images, e.g.:

{{ $image.Resize "600x jpg #b31280" }}

See Image Processing Options.

Another useful addon is the $pages.Next and $pages.Prev methods on the core page collections in Hugo. These works the same way as the built-in static variants one Page, e.g. .Next and .NextInSection:

{{with .Site.RegularPages.Next . }}{{.RelPermalink}}{{end}}

The above is a functionally equivalent (but slightly slower) variant of:

{{with .Next }}{{.RelPermalink}}{{end}}

See Pages Methods for more information.

This release represents 45 contributions by 13 contributors to the main Hugo code base. @bep leads the Hugo development with a significant amount of contributions, but also a big shoutout to @anthonyfok, @BaibhaVatsa, and @XhmikosR for their ongoing contributions. And a big thanks to @digitalcraftsman and @onedrawingperday for their relentless work on keeping the themes site in pristine condition and to @kaushalmodi for his great work on the documentation site.

Many have also been busy writing and fixing the documentation in hugoDocs, which has received 34 contributions by 20 contributors. A special thanks to @bep, @celtic-coder, @napcs, and @bmackinney for their work on the documentation site.

Hugo now has:


  • Shortcode params can now be typed (supported types are string, bool int and float64, see #6376.
  • Pages.Next/.Prev as described above has existed for a long time, but they have been undocumented. They have been reimplemented for this release and now works like their namesakes on Page. This may be considered a breaking change, but it should be a welcome one, as the old behaviour wasn't very useful. See #4500
