New TER Features (April 2014)

Category: TYPO3, typo3.org

By: Thomas Löffler

Prominent view of TYPO3 dependency

Dependencies for every version

Marked with security issues

Nicer view of the extension details

Since the last deployment a few months walked down the TYPO3 land...but today we did a new one.

I want to describe here now what is new in TER.

Showing TYPO3 dependency

A main problem handling extensions for the different TYPO3 versions was the search for the version of an extension which fits for your TYPO3 instance.
So, people who are working with a 4.7 need e.g. the extension "static_info_tables" for exactly this TYPO3 version. So you walk to the extension page on typo3.org and look first on the dependencies which are somewhere hidden between the last update and the author. The latest version works only for TYPO3 > 6.0 and not for 4.7. So, which version to take? In the download tab of the detail view you find all the versions with the upload comments and you read each comment and hope that there is information about the TYPO3 version it depends.

The time is over of endless search. Now you find the current dependencies of the latest version at the top of all information. And you find the dependencies for each older versions (if the author used the possibility). 

Adds extension key to RSS feed

From now on you find the extension key in the title of the RSS feed, not only the extension title and the version.

Show upload comment of insecure versions

In the "Download" tab of detail view you now can find all versions, even the versions with a security issue. The versions have a light red background and you cannot download the T3X file for it.

Minor things

In the past, the author and the username of the last uploader were shown, even if there was an upload by the Security Team. Now, the owner is displayed with his name, username and small picture, if given.

The dependencies and conflicts are not a comma separated list any more. You have a better view on it with an unordered list.

The links to documentation and to the Code Quality server are checked to prevent dead links.

 

Outlook for the next deployment

- Filter for all active supported TYPO3 versions
- Filter for outdated extensions
- Scheduler task for flagging outdated extensions (first tests left nearly 600 of 6.000 extensions not outdated)

We will have a Code Sprint from May 2nd to May 4th in Wiesbaden to get things on typo3.org done! Everybody is welcome to join us.
