UHeadless following to the best of abillity Semantic Versioning. This means that the version numbers have the following meaning


  • X (Major - Breaking change)
  • Y (Minor - Feature change)
  • Z (Patch - Bug fixes)

This also means that versions doesn't follow Umbracos major versions. To avoid supporting to many major versions the following versioning tactic has been choosen.

Versioning tactic

Each Umbraco LTS version will have a accompanying LTS UHeadless version. All other UHeadless majors not marked as LTS will stop support when a new major is released. In this way you as a developer can choose how often you expect to be updating UHeadless and Umbraco.

The two versioning tracks can be found in the table here:

Track UHeadless version Supported Umbraco version
LTS v3.x.x v10.x.x & v11.x.x
Edge v3.x.x v10.x.x & v11.x.x
Current stable v3.x.x v10.x.x & v11.x.x

Do note that LTS versions will not actively get new featues but will be bugfixed when a newer major is present
