by Mike Johnston, CMSCritic

Today, the TYPO3 community released the first alpha version of TYPO3 4.5. This marks the start of our journey to the first TYPO3 release ever to have long term support (LTS). Release 4.5.0 will be ready by January 2011. This alpha version is a “developer snapshot” to show the progress so far.

What happened so far?

After the kick-off for the 4.5 development during the TYPO3 Developer Days 2010 on July the release team consisting of Ernesto Baschny (release manager) and Steffen Kamper (technical leader) started contacting individuals and teams that were already working on projects that were planned for inclusion in 4.5.

The release team decided to hold weekly meetings together with the TYPO3 product manager (Ben van ‘t Ende) and the core team leaders. These meetings turned out to improve productivity of the team a lot.

Development progress

The release plan for 4.5, the schedule and the planned projects are detailed in the project wiki on forge.
