The new TYPO3 Version 11
The version of TYPO3 CMS version 11.0 was already released on Dec 22, 2020. This version includes new system requirements and removes obsolete code.
It is planned that the Long-Term-Support (short LTS) of TYPO3 CMS with version 11.5 will be released on 05 Oct. 2021.
In the meantime, new features will be implemented, such as multi-factor authentication (version 11.1), or link sharing in the backend of TYPO3 CMS (v11.2), which is scheduled for release on 04 May 2021.
All the highlights that the TYPO3 version 11 brings with it at a glance:
Welche älteren Versionen werden noch unterstützt, welche nicht mehr? Wann sollte gewechselt werden?
All TYPO3 versions consist of three phases, in which the latest version includes the latest functionalities and structures. For users of the latest TYPO3 version, free community support is available.
The previous versions serve as the basis for the current version. They stabilize and extend the functionalities of the latest version.
As soon as the core features of the latest version have been released by the older versions, the LTS phase begins with a duration of 2 years. Long-Term Support (LTS) guarantees continued stability, with the software still working, so that new features can be added and removed on an ongoing basis.
Thereupon, the planning of a further version can be started. In order to ensure the continued use of older versions and to maintain support, after the LTS phase the so-called Extended Long Term Support (ELTS) can be selected for a fee with a maximum term of three years. From this point on, no new features will be added or old functions removed. Instead, only problems that arise will be fixed to ensure the greatest possible compatibility.
Why should I change to TYPO3 Version 11?
According to the current General Data Protection Regulation(DSGVO), every company is obliged to regularly check its website for DSGVO compliance and to take appropriate technical and organizational measures against unlawful use of data by third parties. This means that website operators should use secure, state-of-the-art software, which is made possible by using the latest TYPO3 version.
For TYPO3 CMS Version 11 LTS, bugfix support is expected to be available until October 2024, and then Extendend Long Term Support (ELTS) is expected to be available until October 2027.
Early adopters can already upgrade to TYPO3 CMS version 11.1.
However, it would be better to wait for the release of TYPO3 CMS version 11.5 LTS (in October 2021).
- The LTS phase for TYPO3 version 10 starts in October 2021 - end of April 2023. After that there is the ELTS
- TYPO3 version 9 is only in the LTS phase until September 30, 2021. ELTS until Oct. 2023
- TYPO3 Version 8 ELTS until March 2023
- TYPO3 Version 7 ELTS until Dec. 2021
- TYPO3 Version 6 ELTS has already expired in March 2020
CONCLUSION: TYPO3 CMS v11 is already preparing for the future.
CMS updates of TYPO3 are in any case up-to-date and based on the current trends and technical conditions of e-commerce. Accordingly, it is recommended for every website operator to orientate themselves to the corresponding innovations of TYPO3 in order to continue to satisfy customers and to remain competitive in the market - taking into account the DSGVO.
Of course, it is not always necessary to switch immediately to the latest TYPO3 version. However, a change should be considered at the latest with the older and support-technically expiring version.
