Today we're releasing Content Versioning as part of Directus 10.7. This unlocks two powerful new authoring workflows - preparing draft updates of content without publishing them, and collaboration with others without accidentally overwriting content.
From speaking to users, we learnt that content collaboration typically happened outside of the Data Studio, only finding its way there during publishing. We knew this experience could be improved, so started work on building new features into the Director Editor.
Once enabled on a collection, any item can have versions created - each having its own revision history. Wait until you're happy with the state of an update to promote a version to be the main one, and publish new content to users.
Like everything we build, everything you can do in the Directus Editor is also available via API - you can take a look at our Content Versions API Reference for more. Content Versioning also exposes two new events – `item.promote` – to Hooks and Flows, as well as usual
Content Versioning was a feature built with our amazing community. It’s been in preview for two months and we’ve loved having your feedback.
Content Versioning is not just a feature; it's a step forward in making Directus a more collaborative platform. This update will significantly enhance your content management experience, ensuring that every change and update is a product of seamless teamwork.
Directus 10.7 is now available on npm and Docker Hub. As always, if you have questions feel free to join our Discord community.
