Upcoming release: Umbraco 10 (RC4 is out🎉)
Just one week and a bit away from the release of Umbraco 10 and the release candidate period has proven its worth. The fourth release candidate is out and tomorrow, June 9, 2022, RC5 will be released with even more updates and fixes - huge thanks to everyone that have tried out and reported back on the release candidates 🙌
Umbraco 10 brings improvements to cross-platform compatibility with a new embedded database option, full support for .NET 6 (and c# 10), and a whole lot more. It’s also the first release on the new major release cadence and an LTS release to boot. See the Umbraco 10 release candidate blog post for more details.
Umbraco Forms & Deploy 10
Release candidates are also out for both Forms and Deploy for Umbraco 10. Both packages will be available day and date with the new major version of the CMS. While they are new major versions, the changes have been made primarily to ensure full support for running on Umbraco 10. You can read the details in the version-specific upgrade notes for Umbraco Forms and Deploy.
Targeted for release on Thursday, June 16, 2022
The new CMS Community Team has been formed
In the last Product Update, we said hi to the new Backoffice Community team and now it’s time to greet the new CMS Community team. This team will serve as a sounding board for new features, product roadmap planning, strategy, and more. They’ve already had the first successful meeting where the team has provided input on some of the current initiatives.
Thanks to everyone who applied for the team and congrats to Søren, Frans, Kenn, Michael, Paul, Heather, Jason, David, Callum, Nurhak, and Matt for volunteering your time and knowledge to help build a better CMS in the future. You read more about the team members and what they’ll be up to in the Meet the CMS Community Team blog post.
Updates to the Roadmap
A few updates to the roadmap have snuck in this week before Codegarden kicks off next week.

Is it Codegarden yet?
Not quite… But there’s just a week until the first day kicks off with the Gold Partner summit and pre-party in the evening at HQ. If you’re joining us in Odense there are plenty of chances to get to know fellow attendees already from Tuesday morning where there is a social bike ride and a padel tennis tournament, and as per tradition every morning of the conference the CG Runners will take in the morning sun in Odense. You can read more about the extracurricular activities in the Pedal, padel, and party at Codegarden blog post.
If you can’t make it to Odense there are still plenty of opportunities to “join” Codegarden online and enjoy the sessions. You can sign-up for the virtual event here.
… Until next time
