SEO, Multisite, and Development
A number of SEO-related best-practice solutions are enabled by default. Search engine-friendly URL handling is now a tightly integrated core feature with a straightforward user interface. TYPO3 would like to thank the universities of Rostock, Basel, Vienna, Hohenheim and Wuppertal, the Hochschule Osnabrück and the Technical University of Munich for sponsoring a large portion of the development time.
TYPO3 has always supported multiple websites within a single install. The way sites are handled has now been rewritten and improved to save time for site administrators.
Developers will find starting new projects faster, as TYPO3 CMS now supports SQLite, a popular lightweight and file-based database solution supported natively in PHP. This adds to TYPO3’s long established support for MySQL, MariaDB, MSSQL, and PostgreSQL.
This release is unmatched in ease of upgrading. A new extension scanner will identify breaking changes and deprecations in custom code, and suggest documentation and a migration path.
