Update the CMS Version

The update procedure for your CMS depends upon the method you used to install Netlify CMS.

Package Manager

If you are using a package manager like Yarn or NPM, use their standard procedure to update. This is how both the Hugo and Gatsby starters are set up.

CDN

If you are using the CMS through a CDN like Unpkg, then that depends on the version tag you are using. You can find the version tag in the /admin/index.html file of your site.

  • (Recommended) If you use ^2.0.0, the CMS does all updates except major versions automatically.

    • It upgrades to 2.0.1, 2.1.0, 2.1.2.
    • It does not upgrade to 3.0.0 or higher.
    • It does not upgrade to beta versions.
  • If you use ~2.0.0, the CMS will do only patch updates automatically.

    • It upgrades 2.0.1, 2.0.2.
    • It does not upgrade to 2.1.0 or higher.
    • It does not upgrade beta versions.
