Current state of TYPO3 4.7 development

Wed. 18th January, 2012

Our general goal of TYPO3 4.7 is to improve usability and accessibility. TYPO3 received funding for improvements in terms of the BLE project. Since the first alpha release in October 2011 - which addressed the reworked HTML5 frontend rendering base and the web-accessible video enhancement - the development was geared toward streamlining and integrating the outstanding parts, namely the file abstraction layer and the media management (known as the DAM or Digital Asset Management). In addition to these new code-related features and a new distribution, the TYPO3 Government Package has been set up and published to showcase a best-practice approach on handling web-accessiblity requirements. Overall, TYPO3 4.7 is on track.
