DatoCMS changelog for new features and general improvements
Released Gatsby source plugin v2.4.0 with new Blurhash LQIP
September 1st, 2020

Just a quick update to announce that we have finally made our famous Blurhash-based LQIPs available on our Gatsby plugin, replacing the classic “blur-up” technique used by everyone so far.

The improvement is evident, especially when the images are shown particularly large within the web page:

You don't need to make any code changes to your Gatsby project to get the enhancement, just upgrade the gatsby-source-datocms package using your packet manager of choice (npm or Yarn), making sure you are installing a version higher than or equal to 2.4.0:

npm update gatsby-source-datocms
yarn upgrade gatsby-source-datocms
