The TYPO3 community just released maintenance releases for all LTS versions. Today also marks the last public release of TYPO3 CMS 6.2.

New maintenance releases for TYPO3 v8 LTS, TYPO3 v7 LTS and TYPO3 CMS 6.2 LTS are available for download.

End of Life for TYPO3 CMS 6.2 LTS

TYPO3 CMS 6.2, originally released in April 2014, gets its last maintenance release (6.2.31), and is now officially unsupported by the TYPO3 Core Team.

TYPO3 CMS 6.2 is the second Long-Term-Support version the TYPO3 community has provided (after version 4.5) and was a huge foundation and bridge for updates from TYPO3 4.x to TYPO3 6. It delivered a stable version for the introduced features like the File Abstraction Layer, a big overhaul within workspaces, import/export as well as improvements in performance, due to the initiative of the so-called “Work Packages”.

6.2 is indeed the last breed of its kind, as Ernesto Baschny was the last release manager. After this release no release managers for certain versions were assigned anymore for new TYPO3 7.x releases. 6.2 is also the last version with the traditional backend styles before the drastic UX redesign originally driven by Felix Kopp that was introduced during the TYPO3 v7 releases.

Big thanks for everybody involved and especially to Ernesto, for his super-powers during a long, extensive and exhaustive release which served as the basis for all the work we’ve done in the last three years.

If you are running TYPO3 CMS 6.2 and are not able to update to TYPO3 v7 or v8 (yet), we’d like to point you to a special “Extended LTS” service provided by TYPO3 GmbH. Like already provided for version 4.5, it is possible to get further support for the TYPO3 6.2 core for up to two years.
