Announcing TYPO3 CMS 7 LTS

November 10, 2015

Category: Development
Author: Benni Mack
Keywords: LTS, Release, TYPO3 Core, CMS 7

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

The speed of the TYPO3 Backend has been improved by separating JavaScript code from PHP and HTML. Fluid, the rendering engine also used in most of places of the TYPO3 Backend now, has gained performance boosts, making the TYPO3 backend feel more like a real web application.

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.

The "What's new" slides are also available, as well as a comprehensive non-technical overview on our release notes page.

You can read all about the prior releases built up to CMS 7 LTS here: 

Through the sprint release cycle approach, a lot of extensions are already working with TYPO3 CMS 7 LTS.

Still here - and better than ever!

The efforts in the last year have once again proven that TYPO3 is in its renaissance - back again and stronger than ever. We created a special video for this occurrence:

Enjoy and feel free to share!
