since I created the patch and pushed the logo change I obviously support
the decision to keep the current official logo.
The product logo is not depending on a specific version but reflects the
whole TYPO3 cosmos. So all actively maintained products should receive
the logo as fast as possible to spread the word about the CI change.
To withhold the new logo to distinct between our new primary 6.0 and
secondary step-versions is the wrong signal. Personally I think that we
missed bringing new UI/UX concepts to 6.0. Sadly, now including the
official logo will not camouflage the lack of distinction.
Of course I see the argument that keeping the former logo in former
version might make sense But I for myself look at TYPO3 CMS not as a
boxed product from the shelves but a service. That service should always
be state of the art (if actively maintained).
And to elevate even farther the coherent conclusion would have been the
inclusion of the logo into 4.5 LTS version and the new major version 6.0
- but to skip the change for 4.7 and 4.6.
We received lots of positive feedback for the logo change by our
customers. As expected many were wondering about the logo change but the
overall mood was: Nice that even our years old installation is actively
patched and improved - who does that?!
I'd say: Let us focus on new improvements and new features and not
institute artificial barriers.
