Dear TYPO3 friends,

tonight the TYPO3 community released the second beta version of TYPO3
4.5. This will be the first TYPO3 release providing long term support.

After five months of development plenty new features have been added and
many issues were solved. This beta2 release version gives you the
opportunity to test what we have achieved so far, see the new features
in action and report issues you might encounter.

Keep in mind that this is a developer "snapshot" and should not yet be
used in production. The final release of 4.5.0 is scheduled for the end
of January 2011.

For details about the next release, the release plan and a detailed list
of new features, please read:


We 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 4.5.0beta2 version, don't
forget to use the upgrade wizard in the install tool afterwards.

We'll release beta3 (the last beta) on December 22nd, three weeks from
now, where we expect all 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 the bottom of this page:
