(T3XUW09) focused on improving the usability of TYPO3 in general. Two
issues haven been integrated directly into TYPO3 4.3 as result:
* The backend login has been given an updated look and feel that more
intuitively shows the login status and any resulting errors.
* The skinning of Ext JS widgets (ex. recycler and mass file uploader)
has been improved to match TYPO3's default t3skin more closely.

More than 30 issues fixed

In addition to the previously mentioned changes, more than 30 issues
have been fixed in the last week. The most important bugfixes are:
* A bug in the method that secures URLs for the backend frames was
fixed. With some older PHP 5.2 versions, this bug resulted in a "page
not found" error in the backend.
* Mismatched character encodings between content rendering and external
TyposScript files sometimes resulted in a "no template found" error, but
this bug is now fixed.
For a full list of changes, see the ChangeLog [1].

*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 [2]!

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.

If no new major issues appear that will crash a TYPO3 installation, we
will release the final version of TYPO3 4.3 on November 28th 2009.

For a detailed overview of the progress of TYPO3 4.3, have a look at the
TYPO3 v4 Development Page [3], the bugtracker, and the ChangeLog. The
list of pending documentation [4] in the wiki describes the new
properties and tells how they can be used.

You can download the packages at [5].
