We are pleased to announce the next major Statamic release: 2.9! Packed full of features, enhancements, and improvements to enhance the developer experience, this update is nearly guaranteed to make you smile. Or dance. But you don’t have to take my word for it, watch this video!

A brand new Fieldset Builder!

New Fieldset Builder

We’ve redesigned the Fieldset Builder from the ground up. No more modals on top of modals, this experience is as intuitive as we could possibly make it. You can now scaffold out your fields on the fly, rearrange and reorder at will, control field widths inline, filter and search fieldtypes with a new picker, and more. We think you’re gonna love it.

Publish tabs!

Publish Tabs

This has probably been the number one feature request of all time. We reimagined the entire Publish process, from the Fieldset Builder all the way through to the Publish screen on all device sizes to ensure every aspect of the experience was intuitive and tightly integrated.

Not only can you now group your fields into tabs, but you now have complete control over the required system fields, labels, and even sidebar.

And so much more!

New Page Tree


  • Redesigned Page Tree component
  • Highly configurable Entry and Taxonomy listing table columns
  • New Greater Than and Less Than conditions
  • Tailwind CSS and Webpack in the Control Panel
  • Added the Symfony YAML Parser (optionally replacing Spyc)
  • Multi-lingual improvements
  • Bard improvements
  • Loads of bug fixes

So go visit the changelog to explore the full list of features, enhancements, and fixes, and tell us what you think!
