    @zachleat For those of us that very rarely use npm, and have been poking about on the canary, how does one `npm update` and get the beta, instead of the latest Canary?

    @mattwilcox `npm install @11ty/eleventy@beta` in your project directory will do the trick! You can check in your package.json after or by running `npx @11ty/eleventy --version`
