Hugo 0.37 Released

Spread the word.


From what I gathered from the discussion at Github, does this mean that we’re getting lexicographic order in YAML front matter map keys?

If yes that’s really amazing. And I’m going to migrate to 0.37 ASAP.

The random sorting of front matter keys was a particularly annoying quirk for me.

Hugo 0.37 removes the zeros from the numbers.

  rec: 'nla-bla'

Does converting to a string mean removing zeros?


As to other general questions/troubleshooting. Take it in another thread. This not the “Hugo 0.37 Support thread”.

Thanks for the Release!
Does anyone one know if Netlify makes these updates available quickly? Is there a way to know, other than just trying a build with the new version and see if it fails?

This page:

Was built with … Hugo 0.37 on Netlify. So the answer is: Super fast.


My best guess is that you can build on Netlify using any version that’s in the Hugo release assets. Netlify probably just uses the HUGO_VERSION environment variable to construct the full GitHub Hugo releases path, and then wgets or curls it.

Netlify should be able to use a new Hugo version moments after it’s available as a “Release” on GitHub.

Their build system uses netlify/binrc which pulls directly from GitHub Releases.

Just migrated to Hugo 0.37. A big thanks to @vassudanagunta for the alphabetic sorting order of YAML front matter keys. :+1:


YAML stuff was actually a combined effort by @dmgawel, @bep and me :slight_smile:


I deleted resources in a project I just took live, and the PNGs are definitely crisper. Nice job. :slight_smile:
