Hugo 0.79.0 is a small, but useful release. You can now set custom .Params in your menu configuration, and you can now also override deeply nested snake_cased configuration variables with OS environment variables. Other than that we have refreshed all the core upstream dependencies. A special thanks to @alecthomas (some new Chroma lexers and fixes) and @evanw (ESBuild).

This release represents 33 contributions by 8 contributors to the main Hugo code base. @bep leads the Hugo development with a significant amount of contributions, but also a big shoutout @AdamKorcz, and @davidejones for their ongoing contributions. And a big thanks to @digitalcraftsman for his relentless work on keeping the themes site in pristine condition and to @davidsneighbour, @coliff and @kaushalmodi for all the great work on the documentation site.

Many have also been busy writing and fixing the documentation in hugoDocs, which has received 13 contributions by 11 contributors. A special thanks to @Valac01, @bep, @mhansen, and @chanjarster for their work on the documentation site.
