The generations of TYPO3 CMS

TYPO3 Version 7

Last call - time to change!

Those who use TYPO3 Version 7 LTS will still receive Extended Support until the end of 2021. Call us - we will be happy to help you with the conversion of your TYPO3 system.


TYPO3 Version 8

The TYPO3 Version 8 offered some changes that made the CMS even easier to use. With the optional Long Term Support (LTS), you get a guaranteed supply of security updates for three years. For version 8 TYPO3, this means a secure runtime until March 2021.


TYPO3 Version 9

TYPO3 version 9, which was launched at the end of 2018, promised a number of innovations:

  • Frontend Editing for editors: a great added value for editors is the practical editing via the Frontend. This eliminates the need to search through the TYPO3 Backend. The content can be created or altered quite simply at the appropriate place in the Frontend. A big plus for employees who look after the content of the websites!
  • Speaking URLs: Previously they had to be created using the realurl extension. Now the Core System of TYPO3 Version 9 takes over this function, making it independent of updates.
  • Tool for Redirects: This is also integrated into the new Site Management main module. In future this will act as the hub for all configuration and admin tasks such as languages, domains and routing. 
  • Multilanguage pages: A button controls whether translated content is created as a copy or a link.
  • Upgrades: An extension scanner will simplify major upgrades such as from version 8 to version 9.
  • Extensions for marketing are planned. In addition to the WordPress module "Yoast SEO", which can be integrated since 2017, there will apparently be other helpful tools for SEO and marketing purposes.

This means that the 9th version of TYPO3 could provide helpful tools not only for developers, but also for users from marketing and content departments.

According to the official TYPO3 roadmap, extended support is guaranteed until the end of Q3 2024.


TYPO3 Version 10

TYPO v10 launched in April 2020 and its regular maintenance phase ends in October 2021, with paid Extended Support ending 4.5 years later in March 2026.

New features include:

  • Improved redirect handling: detection of incorrect redirects or automated 301 for slug adjustments.
  • Tag attribute rel="noopener noreferrer" to improve the security of all links
  • New form assistant "form-Extension" - editors also benefit from this feature.
  • Link validation - also practical for TYPO3 editors
  • LazyLoading (especially a pagespeed- and SEO-relevant feature)
  • General performance improvements in the form of caching optimisations
  • Optional: Dashboards for backend users (information about logins, errors, TYPO3 news)
  • SEO page tree overview with all page titles and meta descriptions, etc.
  • Telephone number linking via new tab in the link browser (for direct calls by click from the browser)

TYPO3 Version 11

The official LTS release of TYPO v11.5 is in October 2021. With priority bug fixes, the version will run for 3 years from then on and is only compatible with the latest version PHP 8.

Newly added features for backend users include

  • Optional multi-level authentication for backend login (2FA)
  • Additional options for variable settings of the backend user interface
  • Improved accessibility (keyboard usability)
  • Easier handling of deep links (sharing with other users becomes easier)
