Jekyll 4.0 development begins

19 April 2018

The start of development for Jekyll version 4.0 has been announced, with a release date aimed for late Summer.

The main features they’re working on are:

  • Dropping support for Ruby 2.1 and 2.2. Both versions have reached their EOL period.
  • Dropping Pygments as a dependency. We’re already defaulting to Rouge, and this removes the implicit Python dependency. (finally!)
  • Making the link tag use relative URLs. This is a big breaking change, but it’s the cleaner solution.

They’re also open to suggestions, so get involved and help shape the next version of Jekyll!
