Important: we have discovered a show stopping bug in this release and have unpublished the release from Our.umbraco.com download page and Nuget. We have identified and fixed the issue and have released a 8.5.1 patch. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Umbraco 8.5 puts ModelsBuilder into the core of the CMS. We are keeping this release as close as possible to the 8.4 release, while now having the new ModelsBuilder as a built-in first class citizen of Umbraco CMS. You are free to keep using the old ModelsBuilder if you prefer. Existing sites being upgraded will not be affected by this change.
