The Umbraco Roadmap

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 and projects 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. 

The Umbraco Roadmap: Last updated on December 20, 2021

Now

Block List Editor with GraphQL support in Umbraco Heartcore

The Block List Editor functionality is similar to the one introduced in Umbraco 8.7 and allows you to structure the content in your Heartcore backoffice in a new way. The main concept of the editor is to manage lists of blocks that represent a web page's structure, where each block is both a collection of content and a way to configure that collection to be rendered. Each content block and configuration is defined by an Element Type to make administrating and editing with the new Block List editor consistent.

The functionality will first be made available for new Umbraco Heartcore projects and then enabled for existing projects. 

Released for new projects: November 25, 2021 ✔️

Target release for upgrading existing customers: January 2022

Easier workflow for logging in Members from external sources in for Umbraco CMS

Allow for easy integration with OAuth providers like Facebook, Google, Twitter etc. for Umbraco Members. The implementation will be similar to how it works for backoffice users and will therefore require code to be enabled.

Target release: Q1, 2022

Static outgoing IPs on Umbraco Cloud

Target release: Q2, 2022 (as part of Umbraco 10)

Persisted GraphQL Queries for Umbraco Heartcore

With persisted queries you can define and save your GraphQL queries up front, so you only allow pre-defined queries to be executed against your Content. Another benefit of having persisted queries is that the popular Apollo GraphQL client library supports this approach and will thus send a hash instead of the entire query, which might be a a big payload to send multiple times, so a lot less to send across the wire.

Implement Extension API for Umbraco CMS

Once a new extension API has been proposed and accepted through the RFC process, implementation can begin in collaboration with the Backoffice Community team.

This is Part 3 of Future-proofing Umbraco's backoffice.

Regional hosting options for Umbraco Cloud

With a new infrastructure in place we can work towards expanding hosting capabilities to include other regions. Starting with a US-based region in addition to the current Western European region.

Customizable Projects Overview page in Umbraco Cloud

An improved overview of your Cloud projects in the Umbraco Cloud portal to improve project management. 

Target release: Q2, 2022

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.

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.

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.

Cross-platform embedded database for Umbraco CMS

Adding support for SQLite in order to have an embedded database, cross-platform database available in Umbraco CMS. As with SQL CE, in previous versions of Umbraco, this is mainly for development purposes and has the benefit of adding easy cross-platform setup.
