Hello Jekyllers!! :wave:

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 I18n library.

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.
