Release Date

September 2020

Features/Modules we don't plan to support in K2020: https://devnet.kentico.com/articles/phoenix-s-on-fire

Milestone #1

The first beta version will be available in September 2019.

Completed   Reusable Content

Kentico 2020 will reintroduce linked pages functionality into MVC to cope with scenarios where a content editor needs to reuse content. The reusable content functionality will introduce solutions for menu building, home page modeling, and populating featured content.

Completed   Marketing Automation Templates

Create new marketing automation workflows with just a click from ready-made templates. You can also use templates to get inspiration for your own automations built from scratch.

Completed   .Net Standard (Core modules and Document Engine)

Technologies like ASP.NET Core, ASP.NET Core MVC, MVC 5, and .NET Standard are all important parts of Kentico's technology future. In Kentico 2020, we want to provide .NET Standard assemblies as a NuGet package. Development teams can use these assemblies in their .NET Standard and .NET Core applications. They can also use them to create custom .NET Standard libraries or ASP.NET Core and ASP.NET Core MVC applications connected with Kentico. 

Milestone #2

The second beta version will be available in January 2020.

Completed   Automatic routing

The automatic or dynamic routing is one of the essential features that are missing in Kentico 12. Kentico 2020 will fill this gap with an automatic router module. This module will extend your custom routes with our dynamic behavior. Every page configured to use built-in dynamic routing will be granted with an automatically generated URL which adapts to every change in the content tree without any development effort. The customization model and multilingual support will be included.

Completed   Redesigned Marketing Automation

When you realize that it takes more than a new website to reach out to your audience, it's worth exploring other possibilities, such as marketing automation. We understand that leveraging marketing automation can be time-consuming for those who know how to use the capabilities to expand their reach and confusing for those that do not. We want to help you with the process through a redesigned automation tool that guides beginners and provides sophisticated tools for experienced marketers at the same time.

Completed   MVC Components

Explore the best components for your landing pages in our Marketplace. From simple components, such as a video widget, to sophisticated ones, such as the full-featured WYSIWYG editor.

Completed   .Net Standard (E-commerce and Online Marketing modules)

Technologies like ASP.NET Core, ASP.NET Core MVC, MVC 5, and .NET Standard are all important parts of Kentico's technology future. In Kentico 2020, we want to provide .NET Standard assemblies as a NuGet package. Development teams can use these assemblies in their .NET Standard and .NET Core applications. They can also use them to create custom .NET Standard libraries or ASP.NET Core and ASP.NET Core MVC applications connected with Kentico. 

Milestone #3

The third beta version will be available in April 2020.

In development   Search (Indexing the page content)

Kentico's internal search, as well as Azure search support, will be extended to automatically index all content from pages and not only the content from the content tab. This includes the widget's content or other content inside the sections.

Canceled   Translations.com (Translating the page content)

Kentico's internal Translations.com integration is outdated and will be updated, plus it will be extended to automatically translate all content from pages and not only the content from the content tab. This includes the widget's content or other content inside the sections.

In development   .Net Standard (Kentico.AspNet.Mvc, Page Builder, Form Builder)

Technologies such as ASP.NET Core, ASP.NET Core MVC, MVC 5, and .NET Standard are all important parts of Kentico's technology future. In Kentico 2020, we want to provide .NET Standard assemblies as a NuGet package. Development teams can use these assemblies in their .NET Standard and .NET Core applications. They can also use them to create custom .NET Standard libraries or ASP.NET Core and ASP.NET Core MVC applications connected with Kentico.

In development   Portal Engine Removal

Kentico 2020 will be MVC only version of our system, which means we are removing PE from it. The backend system (Mother) still runs on PE (till 2022), therefore we will remove all front-end related parts, but the internals used for the administration UI (Mother) will remain in the system. The API for existing modules will be revised as well as the UI for every module in the system. Portal Engine parts found during these reviews will be removed.

In development   Marketing Automation - Analytics and Reports

Understanding the flow of contacts within a Marketing automation process is the key to success. We aim to provide essential insights based on the contact's journey embedded directly within the same UI.

In development   Marketing Automation - Templates

Based on the implemented support for Marketing Automation Templates, we aim to provide a set of templates that represent key Kentico EMS capabilities from various areas, covering E-commerce, Email marketing, or even Business Automation.
