Extended description of Umbraco version 13

The recent upgrade to Umbraco 13 brings several important improvements. This version takes advantage of the latest developments in .NET 8, providing better overall system performance and efficiency. This upgrade not only improves system performance, but also gives users access to new and improved features that make working with Umbraco easier and more effective.

One of the notable new features in Umbraco 13 is the ability to use 'Blocks' in the Rich Text Editor, making it easier to create, for example, a call-to-action button or other complex content in text. Webhooks, another new addition in Umbraco 13, allow users to connect to external systems more easily. This is an important step in simplifying certain processes and increasing autonomy for editors, making them less dependent on developers for certain tasks.

Besides these specific features, Umbraco 13 also includes a number of other improvements that contribute to the usability and security of the platform. This includes a simplified process for launching the application and improvements in security, such as the new feature for managing concurrent logins. The latter provides increased security by preventing users from being logged in on multiple devices at the same time.

In summary, Umbraco 13 brings a series of improvements and new features that make the platform not only more powerful and efficient, but also more user-friendly and secure.
