These are the release notes for the v1.10.0 release of Backstage.

A huge thanks to the whole team of maintainers and contributors as well as the amazing Backstage Community for the hard work in getting this release developed and done.


yarn new instead of yarn create-plugin

The create-plugin command of the backstage-cli is deprecated, and we have removed its usage in newly created apps and in our documentation. We recommend that you update your root package.json as follows:

 "scripts": {
- "create-plugin": "backstage-cli create-plugin --scope internal"
+ "new": "backstage-cli new --scope internal"

New Package: @backstage/plugin-scaffolder-react

We’ve made it easier to re-use some of the Scaffolder components outside of the Scaffolder plugin as well as re-homing some common types that might live between other frontend modules in the future. With this change there’s been some deprecations that have been shipped which are just renaming the imports from @backstage/plugin-scaffolder to @backstage/plugin-scaffolder-react. You can find out more in the changelog for the @backstage/plugin-scaffolder

New Package: @backstage/plugin-scaffolder-backend-module-sentry

A new module has been created that allows the creation of Sentry projects with a new ​​sentry:project:create action.

Contributed by @dpfaffenbauer in #15639

New Package: @backstage/repo-tools

Parts of the tooling that powers the Backstage main repository are being externalized, into the @backstage/repo-tools package. Documentation is sparse and so far it houses only the API extractor (which makes the files) and the type dependencies check which makes sure that @types/* packages that are visible in the public API are added as dependencies.

Scaffolder Improvements

Examples can now be added to createTemplateAction in the backend and can be browsed under /create/actions on your Backstage instance.

Contributed by @punkle in #15341

The allowedKinds has been deprecated from the OwnerPicker and EntityPicker in favor of a catalogFilter option that allows you to be more flexible in the filtering from the Catalog.

Contributed by @rikez in #15063

Backend System Progress

We’ve made good progress towards getting the new backend system ready for broader testing. While we’re not quite there yet, you’ll see a lot of changes in the @backstage/backend-app-api and @backstage/backend-plugin-api packages as well as supporting packages like @backstage/backend-defaults.

Event based updates in GithubOrgEntityProvider

There’s some initial support for event (web hook) based updates for GitHub org entities that are ingested using GithubOrgEntityProvider. We are excited to see the events-backend starting to power this type of functionality. More information on the setup can be found in the documentation.
