Exciting news! First beta for Jekyll 3 is out. Check out the sizable changelog to get a feel for what changes are afoot. Key features:

  1. Speed. Jekyll now features incremental regeneration and greatly improved problematic code that caused slow-downs.
  2. Gobs of bugfixes and customization.
  3. Uniformity and sanity to Jekyll extensions of Liquid.

To install just run:

$ gem install jekyll --pre

Future versions will include some awesome new features that we haven’t built yet. If you see one you want to tackle, submit a PR & you’ll be featured in the Jekyll 3.0 release post as a contributor to that epic release.

Please file bugs as you encounter them, being sure to include your version of Ruby, the Jekyll version, and (if possible) a link to your site so we can reproduce.

If you think there’s room for improvement in the UX, also do let us know. We’re always looking to make Jekyll easier to use!

Happy Jekylling!
