Highlights of Umbraco 14

Extension first: The back office has been completely rebuilt with extensibility in mind.

Future-proof technology: The back office is built on modern web standards, eliminating the risk of outdated javascript frameworks.

Completely headless: The content and media APIs introduced earlier have now been extended to include APIs for the back office. This allows Umbraco to be used without ever having to log into the back office.

Familiar environment: Although the back office has been completely rebuilt, it still remains the familiar Umbraco environment we all know and love.

Umbraco 14

Umbraco 14, the biggest update since Umbraco 9 where the back-end has been completely rebuilt. In this latest Short Term Supported (STS) version of the Umbraco CMS, Umbraco's front-end has been addressed. Goodbye has been said to the heavily outdated AngularJS and the entire back-end has been rebuilt with extensibility as the main available. This version is based on the latest Microsoft .NET version 8.0.4.
