Projects

This feature allows you to manage multiple content items such as pages, blocks, images (and products if you are using Commerce), and publish them simultaneously, for instance as part of a campaign. You can work with multiple content languages in a project, and the project can be previewed and scheduled for later publishing.


Compare

A new compare view lets you compare and edit different versions of content such as pages, blocks and images (and products if you are using Commerce). The compare view also provides convenient access to language versions when translating content on multi-language websites.
