Featured Image for Hugo 0.83: WebP Support!

Hugo 0.83 finally brings WebP image processing support. Note that you need the extended version of Hugo to encode to WebP. If you want to target all Hugo versions, you may use a construct such as this:

{{ $images := slice }}
{{ $images = $images | append ($img.Resize "300x") }}
{{ if hugo.IsExtended }}
  {{ $images = $images | append ($img.Resize "300x webp") }}
{{ end }}

Also worth highlighting:

This release represents 61 contributions by 9 contributors to the main Hugo code base.@bep leads the Hugo development with a significant amount of contributions, but also a big shoutout to [@dependabotbot], @jmooring, and @anthonyfok for their ongoing contributions. And a big thanks to @digitalcraftsman for his relentless work on keeping the themes site in pristine condition.
