We’re pleased to announce the release of
v3.7.3 which fixes a bug one might encounter while using
Jekyll - 3.7.x along with a
Jekyll plugin that in turn uses the
When v3.7.0 enhanced our
slugify filter with a
latin option, we also
hardcoded a default fallback locale for the
I18n library to avoid an exception raised in the event the library fails to find
any locale. This led to issues with third-party i18n plugins for Jekyll, especially since the default locale got assigned before
the plugin was loaded, irrespective of whether the
slugify filter was used.
Jekyll will henceforth set the default locale if and only if necessary.
