The docs currently have:
.Site.Pages Array of all content ordered by Date, newest first. Replaces the now-deprecated .Site.Recent starting v0.13. This array contains only the pages in the current language.
Trying to build an ancient site with Hugo 0.20, throws an error on that variable:
Started building sites ...
