Nikola v7.0.1 released!

On behalf of the Nikola team, I am pleased to announce the release of Nikola v7.0.1.

Nikola v7.0.1 is a bugfix release. It fixes some bugs found in the original v7.0.0 release — including, but not limited to, symlinks and Unicode output under Windows; Jinja themes’ assets; date formats, and more.

Get it!

Nikola v7.0.1 is available for download at GitHub and PyPI.
