Release candidate packages for TYPO3 CMS 4.5.26, 4.7.11 and 6.0.5 available
Today, the TYPO3 Community published release candidates of the three TYPO3 CMS stable versions. These are pre-releases for the upcoming releases:
In the past weeks - and especially during the recent code sprints - lots of bug fixes were made not only to the head of the development branch (which will be TYPO3 CMS 6.1). Several issues were also fixed in the stable branches along the way.
After the latest release of 4.5.25, this branch got more than 40 important patches, and even more were applied to 4.7 since 4.7.10. For the 6.0 branch, 170 new patches will be included in the 6.0.5 release, including improvements and stabilizations of the extension manager and the API of the File Abstraction Layer.
The review process of core patches - based on a six eye principle - is solid and works well: every patch was reviewed and well tested, so we are confident that everything works as expected. Still, due to the sheer number of recently merged patches, the potential of new regressions is naturally higher.
Therefore, the core team asks the TYPO3 community and users to test the release candidates as much as possible to confirm everything works in your use cases, too. With your appreciated help we can build the next stable releases of our beloved product and ensure it is free of additional glitches. If you find any issue, please report it to the TYPO3 CMS core issue tracker so we have a chance to take care within the next days (if it's a regression, not present in previous releases, please set the issues's "Category" field to "Regression" so that they are more easily identified).
