New release: Zapier integration for Umbraco CMS and Forms
In brief, Zapier allows you to create automated workflows for web applications. Now you can install integrations for Umbraco CMS and Umbraco Forms to use this directly in the backoffice. You can trigger workflows on for example content publish or form submission, and the packages make it easy for users to set this up - a perfect tool for a composable DXP approach 🙂
Read all about how the packages came about and what they can help you achieve in the Integrating Umbraco with Zapier blog post.
You can find the packages and release notes on the Our download pages:

New release: Patches
Since the last Product Update, several patches for Umbraco Deploy, Contrib, and Umbraco Forms have been released with a variety of fixes and improvements.
All patches for Umbraco Deploy and Deploy Contrib was released on NuGet and rolled out automagically on Umbraco Cloud on July 12, 2022. See the Umbraco Deploy release notes for more information.
Umbraco Forms also received a patch for Umbraco 10. Version 10.0.5 was released on July 14, 2022, see the Umbraco Forms release notes for more information.
Upcoming release: Umbraco Forms 10.1 (Release candidate is out 🎉)
A new minor version of Umbraco Forms is coming out next week and, as always, a release candidate is available so you can try all the new features and improvements. A strong focus on workflows, such as an audit trail, conditional workflows, retry policies, and more.
You’ll also find a new folder-based form picker, captions from prevalue-sources, a new Rich Text Field Type, and more. A really exciting release adding tons of great functionality - you can try it all out in the release candidate and we appreciate all the feedback we can get 🙌
Read more about the features and how to test them in the Umbraco Forms 10.1 release candidate blog post. Aside from 10.1 for Umbraco 10, versions are also there for both Umbraco 8 and 9.
Targeted for release on Tuesday, July 26 2022
UPDATE: The target release date has been corrected to August 9, 2022, as originally stated in the release candidate blog post.
Upcoming release: Umbraco 10.1 (Release candidate is out 🎉)
The CMS is also getting a new minor version, the first one for Umbraco 10, with some great fixes and tweaks as well as a couple of new features. The big new feature is Runtime Modes, a new tool for developers to have defaults and validation for configuration in different environments (such as Local, Development, and Production).
Aside from this, you’ll find a long list of smaller improvements and fixes as well as some great additional features such as Dictionary Import/Export and Localized Search in the backoffice.
Take the release candidate for a spin and let us know how it goes. We’ve just released a second RC today with improvements based on feedback - thanks to everyone testing out the RCs 🙌
Details on how to try out Umbraco 10.1 and how to send feedback can be found in the release notes.
Targeted for release on Thursday, August 4, 2022
Updates to the Roadmap
New in “Later”
Support lazy loaded content for Umbraco CMS
We want to enhance performance for sites with large amounts of content by introducing more efficient caching and memory management. This will be introduced through a lazy-loaded content cache. Most installations thrive with the current "cache all the things" approach so this will be an opt-in feature that can be used in specific scenarios.
Moved to Roadmap History ✔️
Zapier integration for Umbraco CMS (DXP)
