It’s finally here 🥳 Regional Hosting Options for Umbraco Cloud is now a fully-fledged feature available on Umbraco Cloud sporting a brand new US-based region. The next weeks are going to be exciting as well with new releases and patches coming for a bunch of Umbraco products. To top it all off; a nice round of updates to the Product Roadmap - let’s dig in ⛏️


New release: Regional Hosting Options for Umbraco Cloud

It’s here! Umbraco Cloud sites can now be hosted in the US 🤩 This has been on top of many a wish list for a long time and yesterday it was officially launched and made available for everyone on Umbraco Cloud.

All you have to do is to choose US East from the new region dropdown when creating a project and you are now taking full advantage of hosting, storing, and serving data from a US data center. Get the full story in the release blog post.

Heartcore Dns

New Release: GraphQL filtering for complex types for Heartcore

GraphQL now supports filtering for complex types like the Content Picker, Media Picker and Multi Node Tree picker. This means that you can now use the association between content items for filtering purposes. Say you have a Document Type called Post and another one called Author. On the Post you have a Multi Node Tree Picker to select the Author’s for the Post. You want to find all the Posts that have a Author with a specific name (property) - such query can be written with the following GraphQL:

You can read more about filtering and ordering in the updated documentation.

Released on August 30, 2022

New Release: Media Picker v3 for Heartcore

A new Media Picker has been added to Heartcore, so you are now able to use this as well or instead of the original Media Picker. The original Media Picker is still available for you to use and will continue to work, but the Data Type name has been updated to “Media Picker (legacy)” and the new Media Picker is considered the new default.

Media Picker v3 includes support for crops, which are available and supported via GraphQL similar to how the Image Cropper works. Below is an example of a GraphQL query that outputs the images and their crops for all Post Document Types:

Examples can also be found in the GraphQl Property Editor and Type documentation.

Upcoming release: Umbraco 10.2 (release candidate available 🎉)

The release train keeps chugging along and we’re already gearing up for the next minor release. This time the focus is on Language Variants and setting User Permissions for these. Originally scheduled for Umbraco 11 but with no breaking changes and a solid implementation, why not ship it now?

Umbraco 10.2 RC Top Hero For Com 1500X500px@2X

It is a complex area, especially when it comes to invariant vs variant properties combined with permissions. So, we really appreciate all the help we can get with testing before the final release. 

See the Umbraco 10.2 release candidate blog post for all the details on how to test and provide feedback - oh, and all the other awesome features included (Copy Data Types anyone?).

Target release: September 8, 2022

Upcoming release: Plumber 10.1 (release candidate available 🎉)

While work continues on the next major release (due at the same time as Umbraco 11), we’ll still be giving due love and attention to the current Umbraco 10-compatible version, to ensure all your content workflow needs are met.

Plumber 10.1 fixes a date querying bug related to SQL/SQLite cross-compatibility, and repairs a pair of UI issues - one where completed workflows were displaying an error state if the content item was scheduled for release/expiry, and another where date picker configuration wasn’t available when the picker rendered, which caused Sad Things to happen in the backoffice.

It’s a minor minor, but regardless, there’s an RC available on Nuget for your testing enjoyment.

If you're wondering what Plumber is or why it is included in this weeks Product Update you can read all the details here.

Target release: September 8, 2022
