What you can start looking forward to

Below you’ll find the Umbraco Roadmap. A general, high-level, overview of what the Umbraco HQ development team is working on NowNext and Later. The Roadmap will give you an idea of where our software products are going and at what state the different components are currently in so you know if your favourite feature is on the roadmap and its current state.

For more detailed information concerning upcoming releases, please see our public release overview.

For an overview of the features, projects etc. that have already been delivered, please see Roadmap History.

What to expect from the Roadmap

What you'll find in "Now"

Projects/Features that the development team currently have their hands on. You’ll also find an expected launch date/time period on most of the components.

What you'll find in "Next"

Projects/Features that we have started the process of planning. Once the necessary planning and preparation is done, this will be moved up to “Now” where it will be given an expected delivery time and, in some cases, split into smaller components. 

What you'll find in "Later"

Big projects that are on the team's “future board”. As work starts on the "Later" projects, they'll be broken up into smaller components before going into the "Next" level.

Now

Umbraco Deploy on Premises

The ability to use Umbraco Cloud Deployment technology outside of Umbraco Cloud to ease deployment between multiple Umbraco environments by connecting external hosted Umbraco projects with localhost or Umbraco Cloud as Development environments.

Expected Release: Q4, 2020

Preview API for Umbraco Heartcore

Being able to preview content in the right context is an important tool for content editors and this feature will make it possible to integrate content preview functionality through a Preview API.

Expected release: September 29th, 2020

Authentication improvements for Umbraco Cloud

This is the first stage of an easier account handling for your Cloud projects and will open up possibilities for vastly improved integrations and best practice account features such as two-factor authentication.

Expected Release: Q4, 2020

CMS authentication improvements

As part of the work on improving Umbraco Cloud authentication and billing (separate roadmap item), we're adding and updating functionality in Umbraco CMS. This you’ll have far more control when implementing custom OAuth login with great features such as custom views on a custom provider basis, better error handling and support for external redirects and more. You can read all the details WIP PR on Github.

Expected Release: Q4, 2020

Next

.NET Core: Frontend Rendering

Content can be queried and rendered in views. With this ready we can release a beta build and implementers/frontend developers can start using and testing the .NET Core. This milestone should produce a beta build.

Improved Rich Text Editor

Round 2 of improvements to the Rich Text editor. Focus will be on more dynamic/responsive image handling along with improved configuration.

A Request For Comments has been accepted on this topic on GitHub. You can see it right here

Additional Uno Themes

With the launch of Umbraco Uno you are limited to one theme. We will introduce several inspirational themes with broader use-cases and a wider set of configurations to best suit your needs.

Support for multiple languages in Uno

Umbraco Uno will be enhanced with support for multiple languages in the editing interface of the backoffice. This will make it easy to work with content variations over several languages on your site.

GraphQL Filtering for Umbraco Heartcore

This will let you execute filtering logic serverside by adding clauses and comparisons to your GraphQL queries. This should boost performance by giving you more control over the amount of data received in a request and means you can do less filtering client-side.

Version Cleanup

With this feature, you'll be able to configure how many versions (revisions) of content is stored in the Umbraco database. You'll be able to control this on a per document type level and configure how far back versions should go. This will have a positive effect on performance. Especially for sites with a lot of activity and a lot of content.

Dashboard for Umbraco Deploy

Import changes with a single click, giving you easier manual control and providing more information, directly in the backoffice.

Later

.NET Core: Ready for Package Development

Umbraco CMS is running on .NET Core and we can start focusing on the add-ons and packages that will need to be upgraded such Umbraco Forms and Deploy. At this stage we want to get the first release candidate out and this is also the perfect time for package developers to test their package on this new version.

Custom Editors for Umbraco Heartcore

One of the strong features of the Umbraco Backoffice is the ability to extend it with custom Property Editors to fit the needs of the Content Editors. This feature will enable for Umbraco Heartcore as well.

Loved by developers, used by thousands around the world!
