Umbraco Releases Version 12

An overview of Umbraco's newest release, Umbraco 12, highlighting the anticipated changes it brings to the user experience.



  • Umbraco
  • Development

There’s been a new release from Umbraco — Version 12.0.0. The rollout has noteworthy new features and bug fixes that continue to advance the user experience. From Umbraco's official press release. 

Umbraco 12 is a major release that introduces new features like the Content Delivery API for headless capabilities, support for Entity Framework Core, and an updated version of ImageSharp for improved image processing. The release also updates other dependencies and introduces new versions of all add-ons Umbraco Forms, Deploy, and Workflow. Umbraco 12 is faster, better, headless, and available right now!

The key update in Umbraco 12 is the Content Delivery API:

From Umbraco 12 and onwards there is now a new option for content delivery. Umbraco has always shipped with the traditional CMS approach of having a built-in templating engine and language. If you needed headless capabilities, whether for omnichannel content management or simply making Umbraco content available elsewhere, this would need to be developed from scratch or added via an extension. This is no longer the case - Umbraco now has a fully-fledged Content Delivery API meaning you can go as headless as you need to in all Umbraco projects.
