First off: let’s celebrate Umbraco Version 10.
Umbraco 10 is here, and it’s running on .NET 6.
There have been several major updates with the move toward .NET 6, from improved cross-platform support to a simplified and more maintainable codebase. Additionally, the release of Umbraco 10 — a “major” release even among major releases — solidifies Umbraco’s upgrade cycle, with a new long-term release every two years and a full three-year support cycle for major releases.
We’ve outlined more detail on Umbraco Version 10 in its own post, which you can read here in the Thoughts feed.
Updates to the last version: 9.5.0.
We also saw a minor upgrade for version 9 in early May. For those who use backoffice, version 9.5.0 improves 2-factor authorization, to the point that it has its own documentation page. In addition to this, the following new features were added:
- #12149 - A fix to solve intermittent locks in NuCache.
- Updates to allow for custom error pages following ASP.NET Core convention.
- #12193, #12089 - New actions in the backoffice to better organize your Dictionary items as well as copy Member types.

Version 8 (v8.18.4) 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 8.18.3) Umbraco Version 8 has made one update to 8.18.4.
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.
