As Karsten already pointed out: „It's difficult to begin at zero when you have the broad functionality and flexibility of TYPO3 right before you.“ However, the team is making progress faster then they expected. TYPO3 5.0 should not only come with a clean code base - the development principles they want to establish are an equally important part. The 5.0 Development Team will stick to the continuous integration practice which promises less hassle with bugs and communication problems and avoids the big bang when it comes to integrating diverging code.
At T3DD07  the team presented its accomplishments so far and discussed them with other TYPO3 developers in the four sessions mentioned above. This has led to interesting discussions in which every developer did have the chance to give input based on what the team had already achieved.
The TYPO3 Association likes to thank all its supporting members for their continued support in our combined effort to create a great open source CMS and stay ahead in both technology and usability.
