We constantly release updates; here are some recent highlights and favorites.
For a full list of new features and improvements, see our detailed ChangeLog.

Environment aliases

Say hello to seamless deployments. Master aliases allow development teams to swap environments serving production data behind the scenes. With environment aliases, Contentful customers have a safer way to roll out content model changes, can initiate instant rollbacks, and adopt fully automated deployment workflows. Learn more about the use of aliases in our concept guide.

Frontify app

Leveraging brand style guides, pattern libraries and design systems is essential for creating a unified brand across all digital touchpoints. With the Frontify app, you can simplify your workflow by accessing your brand assets from within the Contentful web app, ensuring all your content is brand compliant. contentful-frontify

By directly linking your assets in Frontify to your Contentful entries, content editors can easily browse, preview and select assets that live in Frontify.

Bynder app

Managing brand assets across channels is essential for building a strong, consistent brand image. With the Bynder app in Contentful, it is now easier for brand and marketing teams to use the most up-to-date assets together with their published content.

apps-bynder-dialog

The app is a widget that allows editors to select media by browsing asset collections from their Bynder account. Assets are directly linked into your Contentful entries and can be previewed in Contentful. Once published, any updates made to the assets in Bynder’s DAM are directly reflected across digital channels that are powered by Contentful.

Netlify app

Static sites makes it easy to build fast, powerful and secure websites and to make content updates to your site even easier, we’ve built a Netlify app, connecting your content in Contentful with Netlify’s static site building functionality. By giving content writers an easier, more transparent process for editing content, they can adapt content faster while retaining control of what’s published on static sites.

The Contentful web app makes it possible to configure make content changes without having to navigate between systems and gives full oversight from previewing to deploying the changes.

apps-netlify-sidebar.0ffd73e12b

Within the Contentful web app, editors can trigger Netlify builds with a simple click in the sidebar and shows the build status in real-time to avoid previewing outdated sites. Additionally, editors can track the progress and the last changes made from within the web app.
