Strapi Community Edition Now Generally Available

Strapi, an open-source Headless CMS, has announced the general availability of the Strapi Community Edition. The project has been five years in the making, and the company is excited to see continued growth in the Strapi community now that it's generally available. In a blog post announcement, the Strapi team recapped the journey thus far, which includes over 1 million downloads, over 400 contributors, and almost 5,000 Strapi community projects on GitHub.

Strapi has already been used by companies of all sizes and across industries to build everything from static websites to omnichannel experiences that touch mobile, web, IoT, and everything in between. This new, stable release includes more than 80 issues fixes, and a foundation for a Strapi ecosystem to consist of more plug-ins, integrations, and other customizations.

As expected, the new release also includes a number of new features including:

  • Native support for .env files to simplify configuration setup for users.
  • Improved environment configuration with overwrites.
  • Better database lifecycles to trigger functions before or after a specific event.
  • New CLI command to easily migrate settings across environments*.
  • Greater support for deployment configurations with proxy configuration changes.
