Lektor v3.4.0 Release Notes

  • 🚀 This release drops support for Python 3.6, which has reached end-of-life in December 2021.

    🔄 Changes


    • 🔗 Links and image URLs in markdown text are now, by default, resolved via the Lektor database. Previously, they were not. Note that this behavior may be customized on a per-datamodel-field basis if one wants to get the old behavior back. (#992)

    • 👍 Lektor now supports either [mistune][] 2.x or mistune 0.x. The configuration API of mistune 2.x differs significantly from that of mistune 0.x. If you are using a plugin that customizes the markdown rendering, you will likely have to update the plugin to support the newer mistune, or pin mistune to the older version. (#992)
