Hi Franz,

Interface will probably change here and there until we have a beta
release. However, the most important APIs (ie. MVC and persistence)
should become stable enough somewhen in April.

Improving ;-)

While we used Zend Lucene it was incredibly slow. Karsten recently
started implementing our own indexing / search solution for the TYPO3CR.
After two days of work it was already 10 times faster. But it's not
fully functional yet.

To be honest, we don't know yet how the TYPO3CR behaves with a lot of
data in a realistic application. But we'll soon find out because we'll
soon have a realistic application: Last year I turned down my website
(robertlemke.de) and installed FLOW3. The goal is to get my site running
again ASAP - based on TYPO3 v5.

No, but it's planned of course.

No, not finished. And we haven't yet started implementing content  
at all.

BTW: Sebastian Kurfürst is using FLOW3 in a real world project, based  
on Doctrine.
Maybe he can share some insights with us how that worked out ...
