Through the years, TYPO3 clearly emerged as the leading enterprise content management system (ECMS) ahead of other content management systems (CMS) – such as WordPress, Joomla or Drupal. Since TYPO3 CMS became competitive in the commercial sector in 2001/2002, Marketing Factory has used it for internal as well as external projects. In general, we exclusively use TYPO3 versions with Long-term Support (LTS), as these LTS-versions are specifically maintained for seamless operations within business environments and thus offer greater stability.
While the support period for releases without Long-term Support is generally one year, LTS-versions are continuously developed by TYPO3 developers and regularly enhanced with updates for three years. This support involves the elimination of security vulnerabilities as well as technical faults and also offers reliability and stability.
The TYPO3 GmbH offered an Extended Long-term Support (=ELTS) for the 6.2 LTS version, either for one year or two years. The extended support for the duration of one year ceases by the end of March 2018. Furthermore, the regular support period for the 7.6 CMS LTS version ends by the end of November 2018.
