Updates for .NET 6
The following Optimizely products have been upgraded to be supported on .NET 6:
Enable users to access Welcome DAM
Fixed in EPiServer.CMS.UI 12.9.0 [CMS-23534]
The Welcome DAM Library Pickers allow users to browse a Welcome asset collection.

Create block types from Admin mode
Fixed in EPiServer.CMS.UI 12.8.0 [ID: CMS-23523]
Administrators can now create block types in the same way as they do page types. Admins can filter the content type list on pages, blocks, etc. Block types have the same settings as page types, except that default values do not apply to block types.
Add Multi-channel Content tree, Content and Navigation gadgets for Headless
Fixed in EPiServer.CMS.TinyMce 3.3.0 [CMS-21029]
Fixed in EPiServer.CMS.UI 12.8.0 [CMS-22846]

Select Settings (the gear icon) > Add Gadgets.
To learn more about the new Multi-channel Content gadget:
Search multi-channel content, Select multi-channel content in all Content Selectors
The Multi-Channel Content gadget allows you to create a “headless” content structure. Content selectors were updated to support this content structure content and included these folders. The root of the content structure will be visible including the location of all folders.
The gadget will also support searching for blocks and images in the content tree. You can search by content name or ID.
The following have all been added or updated in Commerce Management:
Fixed in EPiServer.Commerce 14.4.0
Implement performance improvements for cart/order/subscription search
Fixed in EPiServer.Commerce 14.5.0 [COM-15712]
Performance improvements were made for cart, order, and subscription search to enable quicker retrieval of information.
Content Management API endpoint to retrieve content structure
Fixed in EPiServer.ContentDeliveryAPI 3.4.0 [HAPI-2275]
The Content Management API has a new endpoint to retrieve content structure.
It’s important to avoid modifying or changing these APIs, as modifications may break the Structured Content integration with Welcome and negatively impact users.
Note: The Structured Content integration with Welcome relies on your installation of the Content Management API and Content Definitions API on the CMS side and that you haven't configured or customized these APIs. The Content Management API shares configuration and services with the Content Delivery API, so please carefully consider how you configure or customize the Content Delivery API.
Content Definition API - Language Branches
Fixed In EPiServer.ContentDeliveryAPI 3.4.0 [HAPI-2194]
The Content Definition API has endpoints to support managing language branches.
