TYPO3 8: Five Fantastic Facts

TYPO3 is great. We know that, but the newest version leaves even us at Pixelant gobsmacked. Granted, we are a bit biased, but we just have to say it. TYPO3 version 8 is the best CMS ever made!

The more we use it, the more convinced we become. And the best of all—it is open source and has no license costs. In the most recent version, TYPO3 has received a real lift in many important points. Let us look at the five most important:

1. Fabulous Performance

Thanks to PHP version 7 (the minimum requirement), the backend is quicker than ever ever. This will make many editors very happy.

2. Mobile Friendly Backend

The new backend is fully device independent. Editors and developers can log in and work in TYPO3 from any device.

3. Image Editing

Editors are not just able to crop photos in the backend. Now, they can even define a focus point in a photo, and TYPO3 will make sure it is always visible when images are cropped for different devices.

4. Form Wizard

The new form wizard in TYPO3 is epic. Now, you can easily build forms of any size and complexity with just a few clicks. Columns and multi-page forms? No problem. The interface is so intuitive you can start working from the get-go. A manual seems unnecessary.

5. New Rich Text Editor

CKEditor, a popular editor, provides a quicker, more easy-going text editing with greater functionality.

From Earlier Versions

TYPO3 is known for its flexibility, scalability and built-in support for complex multi-language scenarios. It is difficult to find a single competitor in the open-ource world.
