Today, the TYPO3 community released the latest Long-Term-Support version of TYPO3, the enterprise content management version.
After 14 months of hard work from over 500 people around the globe, the new TYPO3 release 7 LTS (a.k.a. 7.6.0 under the hood) is a great foundation for new web-based projects. It will also be supported for the next three years by the TYPO3 team.
Revamped TYPO3 Backend
The biggest visible change is the restructured TYPO3 Backend which has received a full facelift, but also builds on simple Bootstrap 3 - based HTML5 and LESS/CSS3 as well as RequireJS and jQuery. This also marks the TYPO3 Backend as responsive.
A lot of other features are now available, such as default content elements based on the templating engine Fluid, Avatars for backend users, all new confirmation boxes, a new flexible search for files as well as improvements when uploading new files.
Increase in performance
Revised install tool
The install tool has been also redesigned to have a simplistic and simple approach. Plus, it’s also fully responsive now.
As you can imagine, there were a lots of other changes fixed in the last weeks since the release of TYPO3 CMS 7.5.
