In the world of content management, ensuring that your content is up-to-date and consistent across all channels can be a daunting task. Manual methods, such as shared documents or project management tools, often fall short due to their inefficiency, time-consuming nature, and susceptibility to errors.
Strapi, the leading open-source headless CMS, understands the challenges content managers face. That's why we're excited to introduce Releases, a new feature that simplifies and streamlines content updates and rollouts.
This is one of the final changes we're making to Strapi 4 before we release Strapi 5. Keep reading to learn more, and if you want to stay updated on Strapi 5, make sure to sign up for the waitlist.
Releases in Strapi are essentially content bundles set to be published simultaneously. This feature offers a comprehensive view of all content to be published at once as part of a specific release. It's like having a bird's-eye view of your digital strategy, neatly organized and efficient.
Consider a scenario where your team is working on launching a new software product or rolling out a significant update. The coordination of blog posts, developer documentation, and promotional materials is crucial and often challenging. Here, Releases become an indispensable tool, allowing your team to synchronize content with product development milestones seamlessly.
Releases provide a centralized platform for preparing and grouping multiple entries together for a specific release. This enables you to:
With Releases, you can easily group related entries together and assign them to specific releases to see everything at a glance. This allows you to manage content in a more organized and structured manner, making it easier to keep track of updates and ensure that all of your content is up-to-date.
Releases facilitate a more efficient and streamlined content review and editing process. You can invite team members to review and edit content before it goes live, ensuring that all content is of the highest quality.
By using Releases, you can enjoy a number of benefits, including:
Releases is a paid feature, now included in our self-hosted Enterprise and Cloud Team plans.

As we continue to innovate and enhance Strapi, there are several exciting developments on the horizon designed to further streamline your content management experience. Currently, it's important to note that our Releases feature is compatible exclusively with collection types. However, we're actively working on extending this functionality to include single types, which we anticipate rolling out in the coming weeks. This expansion will broaden the scope of content that can benefit from the streamlined management provided by Releases.
In addition to this, we are integrating Releases with Review Workflows. This integration means you will soon be able to bundle changes based on different stages of the workflow. Imagine being able to group and manage content updates according to their progress in the review process – a feature that will significantly enhance efficiency and clarity in content management.
But that's not all. We're making Strapi's Releases feature even better by adding scheduling. This means you can easily plan and automate when your content gets published, making it simpler to manage your content and collaborate with your team.
Keep an eye out for these updates, as they promise to bring your content management and collaboration to the next level with Strapi.
