Detailed description of Umbraco version 12

With the introduction of .NET 7, Umbraco 12 offers improved performance and efficiency. The new Content Delivery API is a game-changer for headless CMS capabilities, making content easily accessible across channels and platforms. This increases flexibility and consistency in content management, which is particularly useful in omnichannel strategies.

Umbraco 12 also brings support for Entity Framework Core, which is a time saver for developers working with custom database tables. In addition, a new version of ImageSharp has been introduced for improved image processing, and there are updates to other dependencies and new versions of all add-ons such as Umbraco Forms, Deploy and Workflow.

With this release, Umbraco continues to focus on providing a powerful, flexible and user-friendly platform suitable for a wide range of applications and users.
