Dear TYPO3 friends,

after a long day and a long night, tonight the TYPO3 community released
the first beta version of TYPO3 4.5. This marks the start of the feature
freeze phase in our development. Release of 4.5.0 is scheduled for the
end of January 2011.

For details about the release and the current progress, please read up on


We again ship an Introduction Package with this beta release which
allows people to test the new features right away. You can of course
also opt to upgrade an existing installation to the new 4.5 beta1
version, but keep in mind that this is still a snapshot of our
development so far, and more changes and fixes will be included in
further releases.

During the next phase we will have two additional beta releases (beta2
at 1st December, beta2 at 22nd December), where we expect all introduced
features to mature and reach a very stable status. Please support the
work of the teams by testing and reporting your findings.

You can download the Beta packages from:
