Hugo 0.27.1 Released!

Spread the word!


Brew is fast:

Also, the snaps should be updated, too.

The Snap & 3rd-Party Releases

Hugo Snap - a Hugo Snap package - not yet updated
Docker Hugo - a Hugo Docker image - updated
Fedora Copr - Hugo rpm packages for Fedora and CentOS - not yet updated

Are they? Running snap info hugo on my laptop shows that they’re still on v0.26:

snap info hugo

  Hugo is a static HTML and CSS website generator written in Go. It is
  optimized for speed, easy use and configurability. Hugo takes a directory

  stable:    0.26     (475) 11MB -

  beta:      0.26     (475) 11MB -
  edge:      0.28-DEV (613) 11MB -

Also, it looks like the contact URL should be changed to the new forum URL.

@anthonyfok can you check on the snaps? I have updated the stable branch and triggered builds, but have seen some error messages I don’t understand.

BTW, @FelicianoTech – the last two Hugo version has been built and released from Circle CI with its approval step in the 2.0 version. Very impressed with it once I understood the workflow config. I understand you work there … I may bother you with some questions later, but right now it kind of just works, and it is really fast.


Yup I picked that up from the v0.27 release notes. Very happy to see that.

Any way I can support the Hugo community I’m down for so just let me know. I’m FelicianoTech on here, the CircleCI Discourse forum, and Twitter.

FYKI, it shows 0.26 in snap (Ubuntu 16.04).

I think someone in Cannonical is looking at it, but this is a big black mystery box to me.

Thank you for raising this issue, and the queue has become unstuck and thus usable again.

The stable snaps weren’t “released” though, so I went into the Snap Dashboard interface and released Hugo 0.28 into the stable channel.

For everyone following this, if your Hugo snap hasn’t been automatically updated yet, a manual run of

$ snap refresh

should do the trick. :slight_smile:

Special thanks to the Canonical team for the quick resolve of the issue!


Yess, I see it. Awesome.
