At T3BOARD07 Robert Lemke and Karsten Dambekalns took the stage to show the latest concepts and advances on 5.0 as well as their roadmap for the new architecture which aims at serving a new paradigm of content management to integrators and end users. To create first deliverables, the 5.0 Development Team started with the development of foundation classes of the 5.0 version in December 2006, after an initial planning and design phase.
The newly created core package is the cornerstone of the new architecture and combines functions for component and package management, while also providing support for Aspect Oriented Programming (AOP), an important feature of today’s enterprise application frameworks. An initial version of this core package was
already presented at T3BOARD07 and is now available for download from the 5.0 Subversion repository.
The 5.0 development team, which currently consists of five members, aims to present the first milestone of the development roadmap at this year’s TYPO3 Conference in Karlsruhe. The next opportunity to catch a glimpse of the project is at the T3DD07. More information on the 5.0 repository, roadmaps and milestones, as well as current news can be found at  and .
