Blog support just landed

Hey there! You're looking at our new blog, built with the brand new built-in blog plugin. With this plugin, you can easily build a blog alongside your documentation or standalone.

Proper support for blogging, as requested by many users over the past few years, was something that was desperately missing from Material for MkDocs' feature set. While everybody agreed that blogging support was a blind spot, it was not obvious whether MkDocs could be extended in a way to allow for blogging as we know it from Jekyll and friends. The built-in blog plugin proves that it is, after all, possible to build a blogging engine on top of MkDocs, in order to create a technical blog alongside your documentation, or as the main thing.

Chinese search support – 中文搜索​支持

Insiders adds experimental Chinese language support for the built-in search plugin – a feature that has been requested for a long time given the large number of Chinese users.

After the United States and Germany, the third-largest country of origin of Material for MkDocs users is China. For a long time, the built-in search plugin didn't allow for proper segmentation of Chinese characters, mainly due to missing support in lunr-languages which is used for search tokenization and stemming. The latest Insiders release adds long-awaited Chinese language support for the built-in search plugin, something that has been requested by many users.
