You got some facts wrong:

> The recent major release, version 4, dates back to April 2006,

"Major versions" are now 4.x. TYPO3 has to release major versions using "4.x" scheme because 5.0 is taken (marketing mistake). But if you actually followed TYPO3, you would know this fact.

> the most recent news on typo3.com dates back to October 2008

June Friday 5th and many more news before it. See http://news.typo3.org/.

> the rate of innovation at Typo3 is far from impressive

It depends on what you call "innovation". I cannot really agree with this statement. There were serious revolutionary changes in TYPO3 during past two years.

> today the version 5 development team is exclusively German

It is true that TYPO3 is mainly used by German–speaking people. But I see no problem with German v5 team. They are always open to anyone else in the world.

So almost every fact is wrong and tells that you do not really "in" the TYPO3. You should get rid of the wrong statements because your article does not look professional.
