TYPO3 Version 10.4 with Long Term Support (LTS) has been released in April 2020 under the claim "Safe and Sound". Long Term Support means, that this version will be steadily supported and further developed by the TYPO3 Community. The regular maintainance phase stretches until 31. October 2021.
After the regular support phase, the version will be officially supported with security and maintainance updates for another 1.5 years. During that phase, site owners should starting planning the next update to the next LTS version. In case that shouldn't be doable, there's going to be the possibility to extend the Long Term Support for up to another 3 years via paid support plans from the TYPO3 Inc. Support for TYPO3 10.4 LTS finally runs out on 30. April 2026.
There have been several improvements in the new version; both – bigger and smaller ones. We've decided to present some of the most significant ones to you here:
Automatically generated system emails have so far been send as plain text mails by default. Version 10 comes with the possibility of creating and using custom templates, to ensure a clean CI-conform communication.
Besides the more prominent, bigger new developments, several smaller, underlying things have also been worked on. If someone wants to know everything about all the details from TYPO3 10.4 LTS, we would highly suggest taking a look at the official release notes from the TYPO3 Association. There you can find all improvements in detail.
After the expiration of the support period, errors and security vulnerabilities will no longer be officially eliminated. As a result, the probability of successful hacker attacks is increased enormously.
Only an upgrade offers the highest possible level of stability, security, performance and future-proofness for the system. Moreover, innovations and further developments are no longer available, as they are not compatible with outdated versions.
