Spread the word.
Very much appreciated, @bep and all the other contributors. Hugo was awesome already and now improves even more. So glad I switched from Jekyll to Hugo! Best regards from

And now, the Debian packaging has finally caught up and updated to 0.39, available in Debian (sid) and Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (bionic):
Nice! That’s great. I would add it to my regular Hugo release post but I assume the Debian package (like most Debian packages in the official repo) won’t be updated often correct?

Actually, the Debian package can be updated as frequently as we’d like to, especially the Debian “sid/unstable” development branch, and the “buster” testing (future Debian 10) branch only 5 days behind.
It was just that I had been busy and fallen behind, and there were a whole bunch of dependencies that needed to be updated or added by packaging them individually. The “adding a whole new Go library package part” requires FTP Masters’ manual review which could take anywhere from a few days (usually) to several weeks (very occasionally) especially when I make an error or omission in filling in the copyright information.
But yeah, since now the Debian package is all caught up, new versions should come much sooner, and should be available via
apt get within 2 or 3 days of new Hugo releases.
The work @anthonyfok and so many others are doing on the packaging and distribution front is really great. To be such a small project and so widely distributed is just impressive. Ubuntu was once my main OS; and thinking about having a program that I have written parts of available via “apt get install hugo” in Ubuntu is … nice to think about.
Thank you so much for your packaging efforts! It’s really amazing to have the package available in the official Debian repos (although a custom repo would be fine). Do you have plans to backport testing versions back to stable at some point (in the stretch-backports repo)?
