TYPO3 6.0 is supposed to be a new name for TYPO3 4.8. And 4.5 LTS will be 
maintained as announced.

That is why we skip v5.

OK and now have a look at 

The graph for TYPO3 follows the one for cms. The same is true for joomla. 
Drupal looks rather stable, but it has a company which spends a lot of money 
for marketing.

Wordpress is always increasing. But do we really compete with wordpress?

Please do not put numbers out of context.

Also think about the following: if the documentation is improved, resulting 
in less searches, how would that look on the graph? (Although it is properly 
not the main reason.)
