TYPOlight webCMS is a powerful web content management system that specializes in accessibility (backend and frontend) and uses XHTML and CSS to generate W3C/WAI compliant pages.
� A growing number of countries around the world have introduced legislation which either directly addresses the need for websites to be accessible to people with disabilities, or which addresses the more general requirement for people with disabilities not to be discriminated against. Nevertheless, most of the existing systems do not have an accessible administration area and if at all confine themselves to building accessible frontend pages! TYPOlight, however, does not treat accessibility as just an additional feature and is 100% accessible (frontend and backend).
� A common disadvantage of many applications is their release cycle. Quite often, it only takes a few hours to fix a major bug but a couple of weeks or even months until the next update is released. Depending on the severity of those bugs, this can not only handicap your work but also endanger the security of your server. TYPOlight's powerful live update feature allows you to receive updates with only a few clicks as soon as a bug has been fixed. You do not have to download an update archive and you do not have to use an FTP client to upload new files.
TYPOlight benefits from the potential of PHP5
� PHP is a popular programming language that is available on almost every commercial web server and allows to create a wide range of web applications. Originally designed as a small set of Perl scripts, it has continuously developed to a full-grown programming language including object- oriented functionality and several other performance-enhancing features. However, a lot of this functionality was not included until version 5, so TYPOlight as a future-oriented software it is written in PHP5.

What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]
· The maintenance release includes some important fixes for the new comments module (access control and BBCode parser), the improved calendar and event list navigation and the file manager (FancyUpload and thumbnail generation).
Improved group management:
· The new "override all" feature is a great tool to apply a new value to multiple records at once. However, when it comes to assigning users/members to groups, you often want to add or remove a particular group without changing or overriding the existing settings. That is now possible in version 2.8.1.
Important bug fixes:
· The following important issues have been fixed (for a complete list, please refer to the ticket system)...
· There was no access control in the new comments module (back end).
· There have been several issues with the BBCode parser.
· Upcoming events and the calendar could not be displayed on the same page.
· The Date library did no longer support dates prior to January 1st, 1970.
· FancyUpload did not work in the popup file manager.
· Using a maximum front end width could result in wrong thumbnail sizes.
· Developers please note that there is no $dc->activeRecord in the onsubmit_callback in "override multiple" mode. Make sure to check this precondition in your scripts!
