About a month after the release of Jekyll v1.3.0, we are releasing Jekyll v1.4.0. This release will be the last non-patch release to support Ruby 1.8.7 and our next release will be Jekyll 2.0.0.

Here are a few things we think you’ll want to know about this release:

  • TOML is now a supported markup language for config files.

  • Maruku has been updated to 0.7.0 which provides some new features and a ton of bugfixes over the previous 0.6.x releases.

  • Non-gem Plugins are now sorted alphabetically by filename before they’re processed, which can provide a rudimentary way to establish a load order for plugins.

As always, Jekyll wouldn’t be possible without the contributions from others in the Jekyll community. We’d like to thank the following people for contributing to this release: Anatol Broder, David Sawyer, Greg Karékinian, Jordon Bedwell, Matthew Iversen, Persa Zula, and Yi Zeng.
