TYPO3 9.1

We are delighted to announce that TYPO3 version 9.1 has been published as planned today. With more than 70 bug fixes, almost 100 completed development tasks and a couple of new features, this release is the next step on the road to version 9 LTS.

Upgrades Behind the Scene

In TYPO3 version 9.1, the database abstraction layer "doctrine" has been updated to version 2.6.3 for example. The rich text editor "CKEditor", used in the backend of TYPO3, has been updated to version 4.8.0. "Moment.js", a sophisticated JavaScript library to parse, validate, manipulate, and display dates and times, has been updated to version 2.20.1. Having said that, the main focus of TYPO3 version 9.1 was on the new “redirects module” and we are happy to confirm, that we are perfectly on track with the development.

Backend Main Module "Site Management"

TYPO3 version 9.1 features a new main module "Site Management" in the backend. It completes the existing modules "Web", "File", "Admin Tools" and "System". The first sub-module of "Site Management" is the new "Redirects" Module.

Redirects Module

There are several methods how a request to a web server or the web application is processed. The first request to a resource does not always result in a HTML page for example. Redirecting the user to a specific different resource (e.g. a file or page) is not unusual.

A new backend module named "Redirects" has been introduced in TYPO3 version 9.1. As the name suggests, it allows TYPO3 integrators and editors to configure redirects for their website. The redirects can be limited to a specific domain and the HTTP response code can easily be configured. On top of that, the source path can be enabled to be represented as a regular expression and a redirect to HTTPS can be enforced if required.

Redirects are an important part of every SEO strategy and often used for marketing campaigns to implement a short, meaningful URL, which possibly does not match the page structure in TYPO3.

Show Field Names in Debug Context

TYPO3 integrators and developers often deal with input fields in the backend and need to know the corresponding name in the database. If the debug mode is enabled in TYPO3, the field name of every FormEngine field is shown to admin users in the backend now. This also makes the process of configuring access rights much easier, because the same field names appear when backend users or user groups are configured.

The complete changelog of version 9.1 is available at docs.typo3.org.

The next release of TYPO3 v9 will be version 9.2, currently scheduled to be released in April 2018. The focus for this release is on adding more functions to the “Site Management” module.
