Phoenix is the codename of what will eventually become TYPO3 version 5, Neos. This version is being written from scratch to take advantage of many new programming methodologies. It has taken the development team some time to produce visible results since a tremendous amount of new infrastructure and core functionality had to be produced before working on the CMS features. But since last year, TYPO3-Neos provides a graphical user interface which makes it possible to actually use the current development version as a CMS. Though the breadth of its feature set is not yet close to that of its older brother (TYPO3 4), the foundation is laid and ready to build an advanced CMS that will be the leader in features and modern software architecture. It is a true contender for all the kinds of projects that you can imagine for a CMS and web application framework. In this session you'll see what can be done with TYPO3-Neos today and what we have planned for the rest of this year.
