It's’ that time of year where many of us get to take a little break and enjoy some time in the sun 😎 There are still Umbraco releases and news to catch up with - so grab your favorite sun-chair and dive into this summer edition of the Product Update 🌞 


New release: Patches for Umbraco Forms and Deploy

Today we have released new patches for Umbraco Forms and Deploy. All eligible Umbraco Cloud sites will receive the patch automatically.

Umbraco Forms 6.0.10 and 4.4.9

For Umbraco Forms, we are releasing patch versions 6.0.10 and 4.4.9 to resolve a regression issue with saved media uploads from the recent security vulnerability patches. So if you’re on 6.0.x or 4.x you can now upgrade to the latest version. For everyone else, we highly recommend you upgrade to the latest version that includes the security patch. You can read all about the security issue and what patches are available in the security advisory blog post. Full details about the vulnerability will be published by the reporter in a few weeks.

Release notes and download can be found on the Umbraco Forms download page.

Umbraco 9 release candidate and package betas

The release candidate for Umbraco 9 has been out for a few weeks now and so has a number of betas for packages. We’re thankful for the feedback received so far and hope more of you can get time to test the RC, or start upcoming projects, and report any issues so we can get these fixed before the final release.

If you want to use (or test) Umbraco Forms and Deploy you can find more information in the Umbraco 9 documentation. We’d love to get your feedback for both Umbraco 9 and the official add-ons.

Community packages

A great effort has been made on a number of the popular community and licensed packages for Umbraco to make them ready to run on .NET 5/.NET Core and Umbraco 9. You can even find some of them in the backoffice package section.

Note that packages in Umbraco 9 are installed via NuGet, so you’ll either need to use the terminal (you can find the NuGet command in the package description) or via the package manager in Visual Studio.

1 day left to take the Developer Nation Survey

Join the more than 55,000 developers that contribute to the survey by sharing insights and interests. Participating in the Developer Nation Survey affords you the opportunity to impact one of the biggest surveys in our industry - and win some prizes too :)

This year, Umbraco has partnered with SlashData to bring more awareness around the Developer Nation Survey. A partnership that will help us learn more about the structure and needs of the Umbraco community, compared to the global developer community.

Take the survey


The deadline is tomorrow, August 4th, so if you haven’t done so already, we hope you’ll join in and help provide perspective from our corner of the tech community.

You can learn more about why we support the survey and why you should participate in the Developer Nation Survey blog post.
