Typo3 Version 4.0 Launches

The makers of Typo3, a powerful content management system, announced today that Version 4.0 of their software is now available.

“It was time to change our image and public appearance,” explains Rasmus Skjoldan, head of CI & Branding. For the past few years, TYPO3 had been developing its own corporate identity. Now it was time to communicate it to the rest of the world. The challenge was combining the technical seriousness of the software itself with its user-friendliness in a broad branding project. Skjoldan adds, “Along with the marketing-related aspects, the new logo is meant to convey the core vision of the TYPO3 project: the ambition and willingness to share.”

According to the company’s release, the new version include a “new combination of the ‘versioning’, ‘workspaces’ and ‘workflow’ extensions constitute a base for targeted administration and publication of various content, versions and entire TYPO3 page structures, making it easier to control large amounts of content within an organization. With the revolutionary ‘workspaces’ extension, editors can now select a variety of objects (pages, content, even entire websites) all at once and edit the bundle without changing any live content.”
