Last year we reported the arrival of Sitecore vol. 10. This was a great opportunity for those who were using version 8 and earlier for an upgrade. If someone still has not done so, the 10.1 edition has just appeared, which introduces further improvements for users, making working on and using the Sitecore platform even easier and more efficient.
