Hugo 0.50 Released

Spread the word!


Thanks, bep! Termux extra packages for Termux on Android are updated.

Thanks a lot bep!

I’ve noticed some minor display bug though.
Running Hugo 0.50 in Windows 10 shell it prints a control character sequence before and after the usual “Building sites” message.

Remnant from non windows builds maybe…:smiley:

Nah… I redid the logic with these Ansi escape codes and use a library to get some proper truth about you running in a proper terminal or not. But that is possibly not enough for the Windows case … Can you create a GitHub issue to remind me to fix it?

Yes, of course!

I didn’t have time to try it in dev but wow, this is great! Love the colors in the terminal and the super easy-to-read browser errors. Fantastic @bep, thanks!

Tnx for another great release of Hugo. Love the error messages in the browser, just testing the rest with an example project. Very fast, very reliable - just Hugo!

Hugo is reaching a point where I’m not even sure what to wish for anymore :joy:


Brew me a nice brazilian coffee in the morning perhaps :sunglasses:

You’re right. I started when Hugo was someting around v0.21 or so and the evolvement since then is outstanding.

Some say (seriously) that Hugo 0.18 still is the best.

I believe that’s called maturity (or product market fit for startups). Perhaps this means we’re not far off from v1.0 anymore.

This definitely is a great release. Very little in this release was needed, I feel like it was polish. That’s what’s crazy because typically polish doesn’t improve performance. I’m very excited for Hugo.

Chocolatey package is automatically updated at (I maintain this package).

There is the standard Hugo package ( which is always behind releases (I don’t maintain this but have offered to help keep it up to date without success unfortunately). I just tend to install the extended package - it’s larger but still has the same functionality.

My suggestion would be to track the hugo-extended package - as it’s is automatically updated whenever a new release is made it will be available, at most, within 12 hours of the Github release (and generally a lot sooner!).


Thanks, I’ve updated my above post.


I’ve finally updated the copr repo. Sorry for the delay :confused:
