TYPO3 LTS: What?

Each major TYPO3 LTS release comes with a promise: three years of support, ensuring your digital platforms are always secure, up-to-date, and high-performing. TYPO3 CMS, renowned for its Long-Term Support (LTS), isn't just a content management system; it's your partner in digital success.

The LTS versions are significant because they provide a stable and reliable foundation for websites and applications, making it easier for organizations to plan and maintain their TYPO3-based projects over an extended period.

Check out the TYPO3 Development Roadmap


Responsibility for TYPO3 LTS lies with the TYPO3 community and the TYPO3 Association, a dedicated non-profit organization overseeing the development and maintenance of TYPO3. The TYPO3 community is composed of developers, integrators, and users who contribute to the project in various ways, including coding, documentation, and support. 

The TYPO3 Association plays a central role in coordinating the development and support of TYPO3 LTS releases. It sets the roadmap for the CMS, organizes events, and provides resources for the community to work on TYPO3, such as the TYPO3 GmbH that in turn oversees ELTS services and the core development of TYPO3.

"We Offer Long-Term Project Reliability and Budget Management"

The TYPO3 lifecycle, with its predictable release cycle and extended support options, enables you to plan long-term projects with confidence. Knowing that each version is supported for a minimum of three years allows for better budget allocation and resource planning. You can assure your clients of sustained website functionality and security, which is crucial for maintaining a professional image and trust.

"We Provide Top-Tier Security and Stability for Our Clients"

The continuous provision of security patches and maintenance updates for at least three years post-release ensures that you can offer your clients a highly secure and stable platform. This not only minimizes the risk of security breaches but also enhances the overall performance and reliability of the websites they manage. You can leverage this as a key selling point in an era where cybersecurity is a top concern for businesses.

"We Ensure Economical Website Maintenance with Extended Support"

The option of Extended Long Term Support (ELTS) after the standard support period offers you a cost-effective way to maintain your clients' websites without the immediate need for major upgrades. This is especially beneficial those with limited budgets or when more time to plan for a significant update is required. ELTS ensures that their websites remain secure and compatible with the latest technologies, even beyond the standard support period.

"Our Commitment to Professional Excellence with TYPO3"

By choosing TYPO3, you demonstrate a commitment to high professional standards. TYPO3 CMS aligns with the needs of businesses requiring a robust, scalable, and secure platform. You can highlight this to clients as a testament to your dedication to delivering top-tier digital solutions, reinforcing their reputation as a reliable and forward-thinking partner.

"We Maximize Client ROI Through Strategic TYPO3 Usage"
