All about TYPO3 v7.6 ELTS
Community-provided, free long-term support for TYPO3 v7.6 expired in November 2018. Since then, TYPO3 GmbH has offered Extended Long Term Support to keep your website secure and running smoothly.
TYPO3 v7.6 is still widely used in many enterprise environments. To respect the complexity of updating integrated third-party solutions and many older extensions, we decided to prolong ELTS for an additional year. Decision Makers and IT Managers have to produce a secure and updated system for their clients and stakeholders. We are providing the much-needed time and extending their update window to the latest TYPO3 major version.
Due to popular demand, we decided to extend the runtime of ELTS 7.6 by another year.
This fourth year will start on December 1, 2021, and end on November 30, 2022. Plans are available now.
The pricing for year four of ELTS 7.6 is as follows:
- €2.200 per Single Plan
- €8.800 per Pro Plan
- €16.500 per Agency Plan
Please note that we also created a discounted bundle for years three and four, in case you also need coverage for the remainder of year three.
TYPO3 v7 was a watershed update back in 2015. TYPO3 v7 was kicked off in November 2014 with the theme of “embrace and innovate.” Version 7.6 introduced some major changes, emphasizing improving the editor and admin user experience, removing legacy code (to achieve a more lean core), and speeding up TYPO3. The changes included:
- PHP 7.0 compatibility
- UX improvements in the backend
- Fluid-based Content Rendering ("fluid_styled_content")
- Content editor improvements
- A fully responsive editing interface
- Performance improvements
- A switch to the sprint release concept with time-based releases
- Image manipulation
In addition, this was the first TYPO3 release to include support for PHP Standard Recommendations (PSR) with the HTTP Message Interface. This has helped to improve developer adoption with widely used standards.
The TYPO3 Roadmap and release process introduced in this cycle have had far-reaching benefits, ensuring TYPO3 releases are reliable, consistent, and punctual.
TYPO3 v7 PHP requirements: PHP 5.5 to 7.3.
Since TYPO3 v7 LTS support expired in 2015, site owners might worry about being vulnerable to security risks and compliance issues. TYPO3 v7 ELTS will keep you covered until November 2022.
TYPO3 v7.6 ELTS has had more than ten updates (and counting!) as of its official launch date. Since the last LTS release, your sites are missing out on security updates and bug fixes if you haven't updated.
