December 14, 2023

XPath alternative for Umbraco CMS

XPath is still used in a few places, for example feature on Multinode Tree Picker which allows dynamically determining a start node. An alternative that does not require all content to be in cache will be implemented. This is a requirement for Support Lazy Loaded Content for Umbraco CMS.

Released: December 14, 2023, Umbraco version 13 

Webhooks for Umbraco CMS

We’ll make it possible to add webhooks so that other systems can be notified when changes happen in the Umbraco backend. This will introduce retry functionality and separate logging of the webhooks.

Released: December 14, 2023, Umbraco version 13 

UI for Webhooks in Umbraco CMS

Together with the Heartcore team, we'll add UI for the webhooks functionality introduced earlier so that you can add webhooks without adding any code.

Released: December 14, 2023, Umbraco version 13 

Minimal hosting model for Umbraco CMS

With .NET 6 Microsoft introduced the minimal hosting model with fewer files and lines of code required to create an app. As they are now also using this approach for most examples and tutorials we want to align our project templates with this model, so that new Umbraco projects are created with the new hosting model.

Released: December 14, 2023, Umbraco version 13 

December 8, 2023

Advanced Content Search in Umbraco Workflow

We're looking into a feature for backoffice content search that enables a dashboard for advanced Exaimne search in the Content section. This will include filters and ordering. The feature will be part of the Content Review within Umbraco Workflow.

Released: Q4, 2023

Content import/export with migrations for Umbraco Deploy

We'll be looking into providing a feature for import and export of content from Umbraco, using Umbraco Deploy. This will allow for the extraction of content as an archive of ".uda" files - the same format that schema is managed - and to apply that to other environments. We also plan to provide a hook for migrations, such that content migration between Umbraco versions is possible.

Released December: 11, 2023

October 27, 2023

Headless API for Umbraco Commerce

A new API has been added to Umbraco Commerce, allowing the package to be used more easily in scenarios other than traditional Umbraco rendering. Aligned behaviorally with the CMS Content Delivery API, this will allow for cart and order management via headless and client-side implementations.

August 10, 2023

REST API served from the Content Delivery Platform

As part of making the Heartcore offering faster and more stable, we have moved the REST API to be served by our Content Delivery Platform (CDP). Previously, the REST API was served by the CMS instance by default while both the GraphQL and the Preview APIs are served from the Content Delivery Platform. By having the REST API served from the CDP we run it independent of Umbraco and it scales better and more efficiently. An added benefit is that the APIs running on top of the CDP are not affected by upgrades or deployments done in the Heartcore project.

Released as part of Umbraco 12.

Entity Framework for Umbraco CMS

Forms in the database

Instead of storing Form items in files, it is now possible to store all items, forms, workflows, data sources and pre-value sources, in a database. This gives benefits in a load-balanced setup, as files do not have to be synchronized between hosts. This also aligns with general practice on Umbraco Cloud.
