Announcing the discontinuation of TYPO3 CMS 4.7 and TYPO3 CMS 6.1

Categories: Development Created by Benni Mack
The TYPO3 CMS versions 6.1 and 4.7 have reached their end of life in October 2014. Their latest versions are 4.7.20 and 6.1.12 which were released two weeks ago mark the last ones in these branches.
We encourage everybody to upgrade to the latest LTS version TYPO3 CMS 6.2, which serves as the best basis for existing and new sites running with TYPO3 CMS. Have a look at our new release cycle process for upcoming versions.
At this point, we would like to thank all of the TYPO3 CMS contributors that made these versions possible. Also, big thanks to Ernesto Baschny, Oliver Hader and Helmut Hummel for helping Steffen Ritter and me out for the releases.
Please also note that all pending patches in our Reviewing System will be abandoned, all open bugs that affect only these branches will be resolved and marked as "Won't Fix" in the issue tracker.
