What’s New
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.

Optimizely app

Marketing experimentation and personalization are key drivers for today’s enterprises and the Optimizely app in Contentful is here to facilitate experimentation on structured content across all digital platforms – web, mobile, TV, wearables or even voice interfaces without the need for developer involvement. By connecting your content (copy, components, layouts and pages) in Contentful with experiments in Optimizely, marketers have greater visibility into what content is running across A/B or multivariate tests and can get better insights faster, without having to switch between platforms.

optimizely-editor

Once it is setup, editors can run experiments on content using the Contentful web app. Marketers can act more independently and make a winning variation the new default without the need to ask for code changes.

Cloudinary app

Dynamically delivering images and videos together with your content is now possible with the Cloudinary app in Contentful. This integration allows content editors to select media from their Cloudinary account and publish digital assets across channels.

apps-cloudinary-dialog

The app is a widget that allows editors to select media by browsing asset collections from their Cloudinary account. Assets are directly linked into your Contentful entries and the selected assets can be previewed in Contentful, making it easier to see which content is being used and displayed on an entry.

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.
