Dear Extbase Enthusiasts,
this week Felix and I did a Meeting to discuss the next steps in Extbase
Besides a few ideas we have to discuss internally first - we have a few
public information for you:
1.) A great welcome to our new team member Claus Due! You probably know
Claus from his awesome contribution FED (http://www.fedext.net) and of
course from his competent postings here in the list. We are glad to have
you here Claus!
2.) We change the naming scheme of Extbase from its own scheme (1.3,
1.4, ...)to the one, TYPO3 uses itself - so the next version of Extbase
shipped with TYPO3 4.7.0 will be called "Extbase 4.7.0" (and so on). As
it is a system extension which perfectly fits with the corresponding
version of TYPO3 it absolutely makes sense to reflect this.
3.) We are happy to announce that in this year we will have two Extbase
codesprints to give Extbase developement a vey big blast.
The first takes place in Flensburg from 15.03.-18.03.2012 and we will
encourage you to participate. Of course you can participate even if you
are no team member.
If you feel that you want to be part of this great event - so please
contact Felix to get more information: http://forge.typo3.org/users/2632
As this codesprint is early enough - all work done there could/will be
integrated in Extbase 4.7 - so this is your chance to get your stunning
piece of code released in April ;-)
4.) In the future we will devide the member list at
http://forge.typo3.org/projects/show/typo3v4-mvc into "members" and
"inactive members" to reflect to amount of contribution a member does in
a specific period of time (let's say the last 3 months for example). If
you have a silent period you will be moved to "inactive" and as soon as
you come back to the active contribution we will move you to the normal
member section. This gives us the chance to see, who can help us
actively in the moment. But this status has advantages to you too - so
we have a lot of amenities if you are active - so you can receive
benefits like cheaper fees for TYPO3 events (equal to a core voucher) or
compensation for travel expenses if you visit a Extbase event like the
planned code sprint.
I'm looking forward to a great year of Extbase and hope that you all
will be a part of it :-)
Have a great day!
Extbase Team Lead
