TYPO3 6.2 LTS is here - well, it was about time

Drum roll, bang, buff, bang, TARAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
The new LTS, formally known as TYPO3 CMS 6.2.0 LTS, is here! But that was also a difficult and lengthy birth. But as already written, good things come to those who wait!

What's new in 6.2 has been collected by Patrick Lobacher in 189 pages and published as a free document at SlideShare. I will pick out a few points:

  • Long Term Support (LTS) until 31.03.2018 (3 years)
  • System requirements PHP 5.3.7 to 5.5.x, MySQL 5.1.x - 5.5.x
  • A completely rewritten Install Tool
  • TYPO3 becomes responsive!
  • Package Management

Now it is time to try out and convert old projects to 6.2 LTS in the next 12 months. Nevertheless I recommend to wait at least for the first update, i.e. version 6.2.1. In it will certainly be fixed the first bugs that were not found during testing during development and in the BETAs and release candidates.
