Welcome to the DatoCMS Blog

News, tips and highlights from the team at DatoCMS
Summer retrospective and plans for fall 2020

During the summer we released a lot of updates, significantly a new pricing model and the sandbox environments. Main plans for the future are around preparing for a new API version and more roles/permissions.

New feature: control the cropping of your images with focal points

With focal points, you can now ensure that the key part of your images doesn't get cut off or misaligned across multiple image sizes and ratios, by explicitly specifying a focal point for the image.

Safer iterations with sandbox environments and migration scripts

Today, we’re happy to announce the general availability of a new, safer way to manage and maintain content structure once your content has been published. DatoCMS’s new sandbox environments and migration scripts have been built following long-established best practices, and ensure quick turnaround times and flexibility for developers — without interrupting the editorial workflow.

Retrospective - An avalanche of little things

March to May 2020, too many little things happened in Dato-land, plus one massive.

Simpler and cheaper: lowering the price of DatoCMS for agencies

Today we are thrilled to introduce a new "Scale" plan, offering 3 projects per €199/month, then €29/month for each additional project. This means reducing our previous prices by 32-70%, depending on the number of your projects.

We're also simplifying our pricing by removing a large number of limits on all of our plans, keeping only the most characteristic ones.

We hope that these changes will allow hundreds of new companies to adopt Jamstack and DatoCMS as their go-to architecture, even for their lower-budget projects.

New website and Marketplace!
