Upcoming release: Umbraco 10 (release candidate is out 🎉)
The next major version of Umbraco is getting closer. Umbraco 10 has numerous improvements, not least due to the update to .NET 6 and ASP.NET Core 6. You’ll also find a healthy round of updated dependencies, among them WebP support via ImageSharp 2. A new embedded database option for local development replacing SQL CE is also available making cross-platform development even easier.
We hope you’ll give the release candidate a go, either installing new projects or upgrading existing ones, and report if you find anything that should be addressed before release. There are already packages that support Umbraco 10 and we’ll soon have both Umbraco Forms and Deploy ready for testing as well as new RC releases in the coming month.
Watch the latest UmbraCollab session for some tips on upgrading and testing your packages on Umbraco 10.
The release candidate blog post has all the details on how to get your hands on Umbraco 10, what to test, and a look at the new features and improvements.
Targeted for release on Thursday, June 16, 2022
