The TYPO3 Core Team is proud to announce the first Release Candidate of
TYPO3 version 4.3. After the previous alpha and beta releases this
Release Candidate is one of the very last steps before the final version
of TYPO3 4.3.

So, what's changed in this release?


Moved Advanced Frontend Editing to TER

The Advanced Frontend Editing extension that was added to the TYPO3 Core
in the first beta release has now been removed from the Core and will be
published in the TYPO3 Extension Repository (TER) as "feeditadvanced"
[1] in conjunction with the final release of TYPO3 4.3. The new frontend
editing functionality has been developed as an extension all along and
the required TYPO3 Core changes have been in place prior to the first
beta release. Moving the extension out of the Core and to the TER offers
more flexibility as bugfixes can be released independent of patch level
releases for the TYPO3 Core.  This also allows new features to be added
during the TYPO3 4.3 lifetime. The extension will still be maintained by
the TYPO3 Core Team and any interested developers are welcome to join
the project at Forge [2].

More than 50 issues fixed

In addition to the previously mentioned changes, more than 50 issues
have been fixed in the last week, several of which were related to PHP
5.3 compatibility. For a full list of changes, see the ChangeLog [3].

*Next steps to climb the TYPO3 4.3 hill*

Please test this Release Candidate as much as possible, especially the
new features from the previous alpha and beta releases! If you're using
one of the new features in a project already and discover bugs, please
report them immediately to bugs.typo3.org [4]!

If you're upgrading from a previous TYPO3 version, please be sure to
execute the database analyzer and update wizard in the TYPO3 Install Tool.

We will release another Release Candidate in one week and continue that
process until we feel comfortable that the code base is ready for the
final release. This means that you can expect the final version to be
ready by the end of November 2009.

For a detailed overview of the progress of TYPO3 4.3, have a look at the
TYPO3 v4 Development Page [5], the bugtracker, and the ChangeLog. The
list of pending documentation [6] in the wiki describes the new
properties and tells how they can be used.
