GitHub Pages — the easiest way to quickly publish beautiful pages for you and your projects — just got a major upgrade. We’re now running Jekyll 1.0.2, which contains over 100 changes and new features. Some of the ones we’re most excited to start using:
- Support for the Gist tag for easily embedding Gists (example)
- Automatically generated post excerpts (example)
- Save and preview drafts before publishing (example)
- Lots of features that make creating and testing sites locally easier
New to Jekyll? This release also marks the launch of a brand new documentation site designed to help new users dive right in.
