While v7 brings an insane amount of new stuff, the most notable change is the new background image. It is no longer anti-selling the theme. The old image was a blurred version of Napoleon Bonaparte, which was just… weird. I could tell the story of how this came to be, but I’d rather show you the new and improved background image.
This maintenance release includes various quality-of-life improvements, especially when using the gem-based version of the theme. These changes come in handy when using Hydejack for a quick (project-) page: The
home layout, which is used when using
jekyll new, is now a proper layout that displays a few posts/pages below the regular content, and it is again possible to define an author in
_config.yml without setting up a
_data directory (for more, see blow).
In this release I’ve added a “Other Projects” section to the bottom of each project page, making it easier for users to navigate through your collection and discover other projects. Also, it’s now possible to display larger (data-) tables that were previously cut off (especially on mobile devices).
This release makes including third party plugins easier. Until now, the push state approach to loading new pages has been interfering with embedded
script tags. This version changes this by simulating the sequential loading of script tags on a fresh page load.
