Updated release timeline for TYPO3 4.0

Categories: Development Created by Sebastian Kurfürst
The release timeline for TYPO3 4.0 has been updated in order to have a final release together with the launch of the new corporate design.
Postponing the release of TYPO3 4.0 will at the same time give the developers more time to prepare a thorough testing phase of the new features. The new schedule consists of these (tentative) dates:

December 20
  • Release TYPO3 4.0 beta 1
  • 4 weeks for testing
March 2006
  • Feature freeze
  • Release 4.0 RC1
  • Two weeks for testing (one week more than usually because of T3BOARD)
+1 week
  • Maybe: TYPO3 4.0 Final
  • Otherwise: 4.0 RC2
  • If another RC is needed, each one will add 1 more week for additional tests.
You're all invited to help us testing when the first beta has been released. For any questions about the upcoming release just contact <link>Michael Stucki (release manager) or <link>Robert Lemke (R&D committee).
