Well, Christmas has come early!

Lots more new Features in the changelog.



All tabs within the content management system are now using Umbraco's own built-in tabs rather than using the Matryoshka tab package. This is thanks to the new functionality available in Umbraco 8.17. 


We have rewritten the code powering our Blog system. It is no longer tied to Examine and instead uses the node traversal approach which has been proven to be more efficient during testing.


Lots more Performance improvements in the changelog.


We've mostly focused on enhancing the editor experience in this release and we're certain these improvements are going to make you very happy.

Block List Editor

We've extended the functionality around the Block List Editor to offer a better user experience when editing content.

The user interface within the Global node has been redesigned.

New Header layouts

There are now 20 out of the box header layouts to choose from.


Member registration now allows assignment to a preferred member group. This means you can now have multiple membership types on your website, allowing you to direct different registered members to different content without having to define them yourself in the CMS.

Choose member groups when creating registration form in Umbraco.

Improved 1 to 1 Variant Translation

All 1-1 translation is ready to go out of the box. Add an additional language to your Site Builder powered website and all relevant fields will be ready to be populated instantly. 


Lots more Enhancements in the changelog.


We always try our best to listen to our user feedback as well as review our code with every release. There are lots of other minor fixes throughout version 1.1.0 and you can find out more about these in the changelog.
