Netlify doesn't use the latest version of a plugin

@netlify/plugin-sitemap now has a 0.5.0 version with new options. However, when building the site Netlify still uses the 2 month old 0.3.4 version and I can’t figure out how to use the latest version.

The 0.3.4 version was previously installed, so it might be a caching problem, however rebuilding with cleared cache does nothing…

Is there a way to force Netlify to use the newest version of plugins?


Hi @devs,

Plugin upgrades go through a code review process which can take several days. The new version of @netlify/plugin-sitemap should be in production soon.

In the meantime, you can npm install any plugin in your site in order to force a specific version of that plugin.


The latest version of @netlify/plugin-sitemap 0.5.0 is now available in production :slight_smile:
