Umbraco 8.7

Umbraco 8.7 contains a bunch of new features such as the new Block List Editor, support for segments at API level, Content Apps for Document Types and complex validation in property editors. It also contains a lot of bug-, stability- and accessibility fixes from both HQ and community contributions.

Block Editor

A new back-office editor that handles common page structure editing in a simple and intuitive way. The main concept of the editor is to manage list of blocks that represents 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 editor consistent.

This editor aims to be an alternative to the popular editors in Umbraco version 7 such as the Grid, Stacked Content, LeBlender and Doc Type Grid Editor.

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

Improved Widgets for Uno

Umbraco Uno improved with a complete overhaul of the widget engine and layout. This adds several improvements to the ability to easily edit and manage content within the Umbraco backoffice for Uno editors.

SEO improvements for Uno

With this updates, it is easy to configure a long list of important SEO parameters for your Uno website - without any need to access the code directly.

Examples of improvements:

  • Noindex/nofollow settings on individual page level
  • Manual 301 redirects
  • Management of image ALT text
  • URL management on individual page level

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.

.NET Core: Backoffice Operational

Umbraco Forms API for Umbraco Heartcore

With REST APIs being one of the main parts of a headless cms we want to ensure that Umbraco Forms is just as useful in a headless context as on a regular Umbraco based website. The first part will be to ensure that Umbraco Forms has endpoints for getting a form definition and for submitting a form entry, which is what this roadmap item will deliver.
