On behalf of the Nikola team, I am pleased to announce the immediate
availability of Nikola v8.0.2. This is a quality-of-life release
with a handful of bug fixes, two new translations and a few extra features.

What is Nikola?

Nikola is a static site and blog generator, written in Python.
It can use Mako and Jinja2 templates, and input in many popular markup
formats, such as reStructuredText and Markdown — and can even turn
Jupyter Notebooks into blog posts! It also supports image galleries,
and is multilingual. Nikola is flexible, and page builds are extremely
fast, courtesy of doit (which is rebuilding only what has been changed).

Find out more at the website:


Install using `pip install Nikola`. (Python 3-only since v8.0.0.)
