Umbraco Deploy Release 4.8/9.6/10.2/11.1

Written by Ronald Barendse

Today, new minor releases for Umbraco Deploy are available. It's a relatively small release and is classed as a minor primarily due to one new feature that will be useful for multilingual setups. You can read more about what's in the release in this post.



The releases are available for solutions based on CMS versions 8, 9, 10, and 11. If you are using the product in Umbraco 8, you can update it to the Deploy 4.8 release.  As of Umbraco 9, the major versions of CMS and Deploy are aligned.

Let’s have a look at what you can expect in this latest release 👀


What’s new in Umbraco Deploy 4.8/9.6/10.2/11.1?

Language Permissions For Editors

In the last minor release for Deploy, we added features that give editors more control over how they transfer content between environments.  One of these was to allow editors to select a single language for deployment.  With this feature, we could support situations where translators are working on content and allow them to deploy into upstream environments independently.

Umbraco CMS 10.2 introduced the security feature of user permissions for languages which allows an administrator to limit the language variants to which an editor has access.  With the latest Deploy release for 10 and 11, we now respect these permissions when giving access to the languages editors can select when transferring content.

We've also enhanced the user interface to allow the selection of several languages in one step, aligning with what you see in the "Save and publish" dialog of the CMS.

How to get your hands on the new Umbraco Deploy release

As always, from today, all new Umbraco Cloud projects will be running the latest version of Umbraco Deploy. For existing projects, this upgrade is only 2 minutes away with the minor version upgrade feature. 

We’ve wrapped it all up for you, so all you have to do now is follow these steps:

  • Add a Development Environment to your project, if you do not already have one (Add a Development environment by clicking “Manage Environments” in the project view)
  • Make sure you also restore the content to the Development Environment from your Live.
  • When the Development Environment is all set up and you’ve made sure you don’t have any pending changes on the Development Environment - you are now ready to upgrade to the latest version of Umbraco Deploy!
  • It's as easy as clicking a button, literally. The "Upgrade Available" button on the Development Environment will start the auto-upgrader and we’ll take care of everything from here! 🚀
  • Once it's done, check the Development Environment to make sure everything is looking right.
  • When that's confirmed, you are ready to deploy the upgrade to the next environment - Live or Staging, and start taking full advantage of all the new features.

And remember, you can always spin up a new project on Umbraco Cloud to try the latest versions of Umbraco CMS, Forms, and Deploy, either from your existing Umbraco Cloud account or by taking a free Umbraco Cloud trial.
