On behalf of the Nikola team, I am pleased to announce the immediate
availability of Nikola v8.0.3. This release fixes a few bugs, including
a notable one with galleries not working on mobile.

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: https://getnikola.com/

Downloads
=========

Install using `pip install Nikola`.

formated with ',' instead of '.'

After updating to v8.0.3, I see this error:

(nikola) dzu@krikkit:~/blog (master)$ nikola build
Scanning posts....done!
[2019-11-24T11:24:07Z] ERROR: Nikola: Error loading tasks. An unhandled exception occurred.

As this seems to be related to the new feature, I wonder if I am doing
something wrong or if this is a bug?

Anyway, any hint on how to fix this is warmly welcome!

Thanks
Detlev

Nikola v8.0.3 is ancient and unsupported. Please upgrade to v8.1.2.
