slug field type which allows you to make changes to the slug or let Front Matter update it.

Link a template to a content type
Since content types became the prefered option to create new content with Front Matter, we have introduced the ability to link a template to a content type. This is useful if you have some pre-defined content that you need to use in the content/pages you are creating.
Info: Read more about it in the using a template with the content type section.
Preview path configuration property for page folders
In this version we introduced a new
previewPath property on the page folder setting level. This property allows you to define a custom preview path for all the pages in the given folder.
With this change, you can now define the preview path on three levels: globally, on page folder level, and on content type level.
Media dashboard improvements
The media dashboard has been improved to group the folders/files by their type and parent folder.
