New releases for Umbraco Forms and Workflow are out with some great features (and release notes!) along with new integrations and patches. Exciting things are on the docket for April as well - it’s time for another Product Update 🚀

A better home for Umbraco Forms and Deploy release notes

Before we dive into the new release, it’s worth noting that there is a new place to find the release notes for both Umbraco Forms and Deploy. You can now find out what’s in the latest releases from the Umbraco documentation site.

New releases ✨

New minor updates have been released for Umbraco Forms for Umbraco 10 and 11. These releases focus on providing improvements to the form editing and management experience. 

One of the new features allows you to customize the entries list view. So instead of having the columns displayed default to the first three fields and system information, you can now select which fields are the most useful.

Umbraco CMS 11.3 (final release date postponed)

The next release for Umbraco CMS is on the way and the release candidate for Umbraco 11.3 (and 10.5) is already available. There are a couple of features we’d love to get input on, so if you can run a test or two, that would be highly appreciated.

The release includes updates to the request pipeline, as well as improved indexing of complex data (Property Editors that store JSON), and it would be great to get these changes tested in the wild. There’s also a long list of improvements and fixes, including Inline Macros (Umbraco 11 only), new default telemetry settings, sorting of domain names, and a whole lot more. So there’s plenty to try out.

U Product Roadmap White 1 (1)

Updates to the Roadmap

Just a few updates for the Product Roadmap to catch up on this time around:


New in “Now”

New Backoffice for Umbraco CMS

This item has been updated with additional information on plan plans for releasing beta versions as early as possible to help package developers get packages ready for the final release. If you were around for the UniCore project (getting Umbraco on to ASP.NET Core) we’re taking a similar approach with an extended beta and release candidate period leading up to the public release along with Umbraco 13 in December 2023. 

We’re targeting end-of-June 2023 for the first beta release. 


New in “Later”

Integration with TrustPilot

We’ve had to remove the item for an official integration with TrustPilot. Should new plans be made we’ll update the roadmap accordingly.


Moved to Roadmap History ✔️

Form editing features for Umbraco Forms

This item has been moved to the product roadmap history with the release of Umbraco Forms 11.1 and 10.4.
