Released March 24, 2022. This version is a semi-major update, and it introduced the following features:

  • Dictionary Items supported by Content App — A Content App can now be enabled within Dictionary items.
  • Improvements to overall user experience — From searching for blocks to updates to custom backoffice overlays, several UX and quality-of-life updates have been included.
  • An update to dependencies — A handful of dependencies were also updated to make the new version work.

Version 8 (v8.18.3) updates.

As a reminder, Umbraco version 8 is moving into a long-term support phase, so updates are focused on security and stability, rather than new feature updates. Since our last post (when Umbraco Version 8 was on 8.18.0) Umbraco Version 8 is now on 8.18.3.

Check out the last three releases (8.18.3, 8.18.2, 8.18.1) from Umbraco.

Additional release updates.

A handful of bug fixes and updates to breaking changes also went through over the past two months. Rather than list them all, check out your version (and any new versions) on Umbraco’s Releases page.
