TYPO3 Association Activity Report

The Snowboard Tour has passed with 5 days of sunshine and the all new TYPO3 logo flying on our flags, as if celebrating the release of version 4.0. This first version of TYPO3 to be developed and released under the aegis of the TYPO3 Association is as much the long-awaited completion of many long-term developments, as it is a proof for the case of the Association as the governing body of TYPO3 development in general. Here are the latest news from the Association:

Event Committee

This year’s Snowboard Tour was held in Fiesch, Kanton Wallis, Switzerland from
January 29th to February 4th, 2006. 134 participants, including externals, populated the
slopes and took part in various activities ranging from football and
ice hockey tournaments to heavy bandwidth consumption and CPU load in
the nerding area. Special thanks for a great week in the snow goes to the T3BOARD06-Event-Team: Adrian Zimmermann (www.snowflake.ch), Michael Hirdes (www.elios.de) and Mathias Schreiber (www.wmdb.ch). Next year’s tour is already being planned by the
event committee and the quest for a suitable location is on.

The
second international TYPO3 Conference 2006 T3CON (formerly known as
TYCON3) will take place in Karlsruhe from October 3rd to 8th. Questions
regarding these events should be posted to the event committee’s
mailing list at t3a-events@lists.association.typo3.org

R&D Committee

TYPO3 4.0beta3

Over
the last few months, many people have been working intensely on the
next major release, TYPO3 4.0. Most of the sub-projects are relatively
stable already and the respective maintainers are fixing bugs they have
detected during the currently running beta phase. Two final
features are about to be committed to the TYPO3 core: One is the new
default skin reflecting our brand new corporate design and the other is
a modified extension manager which enables connection to the new
extension repository. At this moment Karsten Dambekalns is fighting the
remaining bugs in the PHP4 SOAP implementation and, as soon as this
battle is won, Michael Stucki will release TYPO3 4.0beta3.

Security reviews

The
improved extension repository provides a highly important feature
to the TYPO3 community: Security reviewed extensions. An extension
uploaded to TER2 will only be added to the official repository after a
quick security check done by members of the security team. Although you
can still access non-reviewed extensions (if you dare), you can now
rely on the fact that at least two experienced developers have browsed
the code of an extension for security relevant issues. This is no
guarantee for 100% secure extensions, but still a big step forward
towards a collection of high quality extensions.
